Poor Alfredo is a frog who just can't dance. No matter how hard his best friend Marty (a smooth talking fly) tries to teach him all the fancy dance moves - all he ever does is Jump! Jump! Jump! It's just not cool!  Or… is it?

Chris' use of rich colours with subtle washes, combined with his simple yet expressive characters gives this heart-warming story a really unique feel. Here's a preview of his gorgeous illustrations.

Just Published: Pam Ayres’ You Made Me Late Again! Illustrated by Susan Hellard

Pam Ayres has a wonderful new collection of poems and anecdotes published this month by Ebury Press. You Made Me Late Again! is the third collection of her poems that Susan Hellard has had the pleasure in illustrating. This really is a lovely partnership, Sue's pen & ink drawings set the tone beautifully and are a perfect foil for Pam's witty observations of life.
