Otto Dinosaur Hunter!

Written by: Nick Roberts
Art by: Nick Roberts
Price: $1.99

Otto Dinosaur Hunter! is a (mostly) wordless comic which has been designed to help develop your child's language and communication skills by enabling them to tell the story to you instead of the other way around.
The easy to follow pictures provide plenty of scope for your child to interpret and communicate the tale in their own words, with plenty of action and humour to push their vocabulary and story-telling skills through multiple re-readings.

Buy now on comiXology!

Late for the Party

I recently received my complimentary copies of Late for the Party from Ransom Books. It’s a lovely little story by Alice Hemming about a little boy who is, you guessed it, late for the party.
It’s part of Ransom’s new Reading Stars series for reluctant readers. Ransom’s Creative Director, Steven Rickard asked me to illustrate it because he thought I could capture the “existential angst” of the situation. Of course!
This and the rest of the Reading Stars range are available via the ransom website
