I’m beyond excited to be able to tell you that I have a new book coming out on March 7th 2019!
The Go-Away Bird is written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by myself. It was an absolutely amazing story to illustrate, with wonderful characters and Julia’s rhythmical words. All set in one tree; it was a challenge to design. But I hope I’ve done an ok job and I hope you’ll enjoy sharing it with your small people!
Synopsis -A gorgeous story about friendship and working together from a star picture-book partnership, the inimitable Julia Donaldson and award-winning Catherine Rayner.
‘The Go-Away bird sat up in her nest,
With her fine grey wings and her fine grey crest.’
One by one, the other birds fly into her tree, wanting to talk or to play, but the Go-Away bird just shakes her head and sends them all away. But then the dangerous Get-You bird comes along, and she soon realizes that she might need some friends after all . . .
The Go-Away Bird combines brilliant rhyming verse from much-loved children’s author Julia Donaldson, creator of the bestselling picture books The Gruffalo and What the Ladybird Heard, with stunning illustrations from the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal-winning Catherine Rayner. A charming story about the power of friendship from a thrilling creative partnership, this beautiful book is perfect for reading together.
You will be able to buy signed copies of The Go-Away Bird from my online shop as soon as it is released. I will also be making some limited edition Giclee prints so you can have The Go-Away Bird and her friends on your wall. Details to follow!
