Toucane’s Colouring in Reader for Little Ones

It is always lovely to get feedback from parents who buys your books for their kids, after all the age group I write for can’t exactly do it for themselves.



So I was delighted to receive this picture of two youngsters colouring in their Toucane and the Rubbish Rangers books. Hope they enjoy listening to mum reading it to them at bedtime.

Toucane and the Rubbish Rangers – see how you too can become a SUPERHERO.

Join me on youtube to join in with the catchy song from the book:

“If you see it, pick it and put it in your bin,

If you see it, pick it and put it in your bin,

Then you, your school and environment will win,

Then you, your school and environment will win,

And your town and the world’ll be clean as a pin,

Your town and your world will be clean as a pin!”



The holidays are over and here comes Toucane

The holidays are over, but an author never stops. If we are not physically writing, then we are thinking about our books, planning the plot, creating new characters and dreaming about them


My holiday produced Toucane the Toucan and main character for my next children’s series. I had had a lot of people asking me to write Polly stories for their younger kids, but, well, Polly is Polly and she likes the 8-12-year-olds so she introduced me to a friend Toucane.

Toucane loves planet earth and subtly deals with many issues e.g. racism and litter to date in his books. He raps and occasionally dances too.

As with all my books, I have a hand puppet to accompany them so the birds and their stories come alive for children when I visit them in schools. Though between you and me, I’m seriously starting to worry about multiple personalities, as they take over from the minute we enter a schools and there are a lot of them now – 6 to be precise ha, ha, ha.

So, watch out for the Toucane Series, out soon 4-8 year-olds.
