HECTOR and the BIG BAD KNIGHT - now available to preorder!


It gives me GREAT pleasure to be able to reveal the title and cover of my next picture book!

Hector and the BIG BAD KNIGHT 

Publishing 6th March 2014 (Scholastic Picture Books)

This is my ninth picture book and I am super excited about it!

Here's some details from the publishers:

"When Hector's granny has her magic wand stolen by The Big Bad Knight, Hector, the tiniest boy in the village, decides to go after him. 
And when The Big Bad Knight sends a dragon after Hector, our hero knows just what to do - with a little help from a bag of crisps! Soon it's time for The Big Bad Knight to learn a little lesson about knightly manners. 
A fun-filled new picture book about the power of good with quirky illustrations from award-winning Alex T. Smith."

Hector is available to pre-order now from 
Amazon, Waterstones and from your local independent book store.
