‘The New Adventures of Mr Toad’

I am so happy to finally be able to tell you about a book I have just finished illustrating called ‘The New Adventures of Mr Toad. A Race for Toad Hall’ , written by the very clever and amusing Tom Moorhouse. It’s the first in a series of four books and it’s my first young chapter book.

I’ve worked on the book with the lovely team at OUP of Helen Mortimer and super designer Sarah Darby. They’ve let me show a couple of pictures, this one shows the ‘kids’-Teejay, Mo and Ratty.

It’s got 75 illustrations and was great fun to work on. It will be published in March 2017.
