Author Bio

He lives in Bradford on Avon with his partner and two sons.

Editorial Reviews

With realistic, detailed illustrations and nicely measured storyline, this is a beautifully crafted, big book to delight children of any age.

The clue is in the title. The artwork is stunning. It's a cross between Iron Giant and a new baby primer.

This is a book to be put on display where possible, so that it might be found and enjoyed by either the scientifically inventive child or the reluctant reader â?? it may well appeal to both.

A quirky refreshing rendering of a familiar topic make this a good book to read with siblings with a new baby in the house.

'Inventive, humorous, realistic and colourful.'
