The Lion Who Couldn't Read

I originally wrote and illustrated The Lion Who Couldn’t Read when I was 5 years old for a competition my mum entered me into (no consent…!).

The book won the competition out of a pool of 70 submissions and I was featured in the local St Albans paper for my efforts (somewhat oblivious / scared of the man in a lion costume though I was).

I re-visited the book as a personal project in 2016 and in 2020 I raised a small amount of money towards the NHS PPE crownfunding attempt at the peak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
