We’ve been working over the last year on a book of weird stories told in verse for kids. A welcome collaboration with an old friend – Nick Kulynycz (instagram – @nickkulynycz) who has been doing some fantastic illustrations for the 12 stories written, each a tale of a different child.
A sort of modern take on the cautionary tale, each story tells the tale of a different child, each with their own strange habits, idiosyncrasies, talents or powers.
The first tells of Tom and his encounters with a tooth fairy who he discovers has been in cahoots with his parents and ripping him off.
With 12 stories in total the book is halfway to being completed and will hopefully be finished later this year. Then comes the task of looking for a publisher.
