Debut children’s book coming April 2021

I’m delighted to announce that the amazing Little Door Books are publishing my first children’s book, Uncle Pete and the Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep, with illustrations by the talented Will Hughes.

It’s not out until April of next year, but it’s already available for pre-order online at the wonderful Waterstones and the fabulous Foyles.

Here’s the official synopsis…

Uncle Pete and the Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep tells the story of Harry, a young boy who has never slept his entire life, no matter how hard his parents try. With all the bedtime stories, songs and milky drinks in his town exhausted – along with all the people – it’s Harry’s eccentric explorer uncle, Pete, who ultimately comes to his aid with the help of a map, a rickety old biplane, a tiny mouse companion called TM, and one very special sheep.

The story is a magical and hilarious adventure of the imagination involving the remarkable journey undertaken by Uncle Pete and his fearless female sidekick, with themes of determination, collaboration, ingenuity, kindness and acceptance.

Stay tuned for more news, and a cover reveal, in the coming weeks. #ChildrensBooks #Scottishwriters
