As a young girl I often had my nose buried in an Enid Blyton book, dreaming of days where I could head off on adventures with The Famous Five. Now as an adult, I enjoy creating my own stories … but for little ones 2-6 years.
Picture books that children, parents, caregivers and teachers can enjoy, with compelling words, and beautiful illustrations.
I believe that you are never too young, or too old, to enjoy a story!
My Story 

Little Lessons

Gently weaving subtle messages into each story.

Sweet Characters

Adorable and relatable characters for little book lovers.

Beautiful Illustrations

Cute, inspiring art that tickles the imagination.

When Duck Got Stuck

A simple message about why it’s important to take our rubbish home lies at the heart of When Duck Got Stuck, along with the idea that we all need help sometimes – an important message for small children.
This gentle and heart-warming picture book is perfect for 2-5 year olds.
