Fantastic, original stories are accompanied by engaging artwork and a reading activity. Each book has been carefully graded so that it can be matched to a child’s reading ability, encouraging reading for pleasure. Perfect for 5-7 year olds.

In this twist on the original fairy tale The Snow Queen, Gerda tells her story of rescuing Kay.

He began his career creating illustrations for magazines and advertising campaigns. He has also worked on children’s books and mural designs. At first, he used acrylic paints, posca pens and chalk pastels, but over the last few years, he has created artwork digitally and often combines hand-painted art with digital images.

In 2016, he painted an elephant for ‘Herd of Sheffield’. This was Sheffield’s biggest public art event to date and consisted of 58 enormous fibreglass elephants placed on a trail across the city.

Since then, he has created many more public art projects. This includes dozens of hospital murals. He aims to bring art out of the gallery and make it more accessible.
