My new picture book coming in 2018

Maya and Cat

Walker books.

On a roof,

as wet as a seal,

as grey as a puddle,

Cat was rumbling, a rumbly purr.

But what does Cat want most?

Feather boas,

pretty pink shoe laces,

a boatful of fish under a tiny tin sail,

or perhaps something much more valuable.


Affectionate and evocative, Maya and Cat follows a child’s kindly impulse to an unexpected conclusion.


My new picture book, Maya and Cat is being released by

Walker Books Australia
on the 1st of August 2018
It is also being published by
Walker Books UK in February 2019.
The international launch will be held at one of London’s most popular commercial art galleries;
Chris Beetles Gallery in February 2019
Then a month later it will be published by
Candlewick USA in March 2019.
I am also planning a number of launch events in Australia this year. Details will be posted on my website and announced as loudly as I dare.
