Books for babies I have developed a number of successful baby and toddler books with tactile fabric elements, flaps, index board features etc. Past clients include Ladybird and Parragon (ranges for Marks and Spencer, Chad Valley), and a number of packagers.
Storybooks for under-5s I have written a number of bestselling storybooks for under-5s, including 'Smile, Baby, Smile' with Rosalind Beardshaw, 'Guess What, Dad' with Mike Spoor and 'Muddypaws' with Simon Mendez, to name a few. 'Muddypaws' is now also an iBook and features on Youtube, too. It has gained many fans since its publication in 2009.
Novelty books I have a long backlist of original novelty products sold by various publishers worldwide. It currently includes all kinds of shaped board books, flap books, books with clocks and calculators, wheels, spinners and toys. Suffice to say that I am familiar with the manufacturing processes and cost-sensitivity involved in novelty book production.
