I recently started work on a new children’s book and education pack project, along with author Rich McWatt. The project is going to take about 3-4 months to pull together and will end up with four fully illustrated children’s books, and a range of education packs for schools based on the books. The books and education packs will all feature a group of friendly, quirky little characters called The Shum Shums. Over the next few months there will be a new website, twitter, you tube and a shum shum Facebook page (facebook.com/theshumshums). Rich is working on a further two books to go with the first four and each book in the Shum Shums series has a strong theme running through the fun packed stories (bullying, the environment, healthy eating and physical activity and racism).
