I am delighted to announce the launch of my new humorous book, DOGS which is a look at our best friends via poetry and illustration!
It's a unique view of dog-life and I hope all you lovely pooch-smoochers, Pug-cuddlers and retriever-believers will enjoy it (don't let them lick you too much will you though, it makes me feel a bit queezy!) I know the Wolfman does it but he's got a cast iron immune system, we probably haven't.

The book is now available from Amazon, price £14.99 (109 pages in glorious full colour and featuring over 50 different dog breeds each with their own comical portrait and poem).

I will be doing some events and signings starting with a TV appearance with Create & Craft this Saturday.
