Have you ever wondered how organic farmers handle crop issues?

My new picture book is based on a true story about the organic farmers down the road. Since organic farmers don’t use pesticides to stop their crops being eaten, they have to find alternatives. One organic farmer found his solution to some unwelcome night-time visitors who were eating all his crops. His story was the beginning of a lightbulb moment for me, when the urge to create and write another children’s picture book began.

The story is complete and is now in the illustration stage. Here is my lovely illustrator Sarah May from Sarah May graphics hard at work making magic with my words.

Henry and Charlotte live a quiet life on the farm, until the night the penguins hatch. 101 penguins arrive and the entertainment begins. The children watch their every move running from room to room eating all the pizzas, dancing on the toothbrushes, and taking over the train room. The penguins have boundless energy. Exciting and playful times continue until the penguins fall asleep. The children want them to stay forever. What will Mummy, Daddy and Grandma do? This delightful children’s picture book is filled with adorable illustrations, madcap adventures and celebrates play, friendship and penguins. A must-have story for young children of all ages. #kindergarten #penguins #primary #preschool #values #friendship #funny #family
