Henry’s Favourite Friend

Henry’s Favorite Friend is the first book I have written and illustrated specifically for emerging readers. It uses up to 50 different words, repeated so the reader can learn to recognise words and begin to read with confidence. Henry and his favorite friend Sam do similar things but in very different ways!

Here are some illustrations from the book.

This is my latest book, Ship’s Cat Doris. It is all about a cat’s struggle to find his feet amongst the hectic life on a boat. He faces a lot of challenges to fit in with the strange crew of the old trawler, ‘Prosperity’.

 Doris’s story is based on my own cat’s experiences. He is the main character in Ship’s Cat Doris and now is a very old and well travelled cat, having been at sea for many years.
