Description: paperback rhyming picture book

Meet the Squawks – an irresistible community of quirky birds!

Beautifully drawn and wittily observed in a tongue-twisting rhyme, every page raises a smile.

Universally appealing and graphically gorgeous for readers of all ages.

'Have you met the birds that Squawk the Squawking talk of the Squawking Squawks'

‘The Squawks’ is the first book I have published as both author and illustrator and it developed from the name I gave to the range of bright, whimsical greetings cards that are sold in my store. I called the funny blue birds on the cards the Squawks, which led to a hilarious evening with my family, who came up with ever more words that rhymed. The joyous silliness made me laugh – not an uncommon occurrence – and spent the next eight months lovingly illustrating and writing this book. The rhyming poem still makes me laugh and I hope others will too.
