A Big Day for "Boy"
This week, a very happy occasion: the republication of "Boy", a book which means a very great deal to me and which has been unavailable for many years. I wrote about it before (see HERE to read the history), and now I've made a little film, to celebrate publication day (Thursday). The film is just me showing how I used pastels to make the illustrations, and you can watch it on YOUTUBE. It's worth a watch just to see me grappling with one of my antique gramophones...
Oh, and if you want to own your very own copy, it's already available on Amazon (although I would always recommend supporting your local bookshop).
So if you have a toddler, who is just exploring the world; if you have a child who crawls into your bed for warmth in the morning. Or if you have a boy who is trying to learn to share: take a look. It's one of the books I am most proud of and it was truly written (and illustrated) from the heart!
