Children’s Stories

‘The time has come,’ the Walrus said,
‘To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
Of cabbages — and kings.’
The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll

Planning, plotting, writing, rewriting, imagining, silly or sensible, I love writing stories for children.

Thanks go to the imaginative illustrators who further interpret the word on the page and make the stories sing: Kim Gamble, Andrew Joyner, Gregory Myers, Craig Phillips, Vivienne To and Lesley Vamos.
