A beautifully illustrated story perfect for reading aloud or for small children to read by themselves! We were delighted to receive a copy of this rather stunning book. We’ve been following Paul Ward Smith’s work for some time now and, of course, Amanda Prowse is one of our favourite Authors – so this is a brilliant combination of two fantastic talent.

This is just the book needed this year to remind us of the simple kindness of a smile. Amanda’s beautiful writing shines throughout and is only further complimented by illustrations that will evoke a sense of nostalgia even for adults!

Congratulations Amanda & Paul on your wonderful publication – and please please please bring us more collaborations like this!

The book is available on Kindle and in hardback from Amazon and many large bookshops.

About the Illustrator…

Paul lives in Kent with his wife, son and his old pal Tonka the dog!

Originally a freelance photographer, like many, Paul found himself abruptly out of work as the whole country came to a sudden halt due to the first Lockdown in 2020. It was during this period he re-discovered his flare for illustration after sketching daily with his 5 year old son. Having not drawn since he was last at school, 30 years previously,  he was unaware of the passion it would ignite and the life changing opportunities it would create. He has been on an incredible journey of recognition and discovery already being chosen for some exciting projects and commissions for a number of recognised authors, organisations and projects.
