At the moment I'm working on putting together a programme for short virtual school visits on Zoom or Skype. Further details to appear here shortly. In the meantime if you think you're interested then please get in touch.

Please email   hot.frog@me.com   to discuss what is possible and the event can then be tailored to your needs and circumstances.

June - September 2020
We're very pleased and proud that BUG BELLY BABYSITTING TROUBLE has been chosen as one of the #sillysquad of books for 2020's Summer Reading Challenge

If you like writing stories watch this short video on how to get great ideas for your stories. And then try the Summer Reading Story Writing Challenge.


So there will most certainly be exhibitions, readings and craft events to coincide with this honour.
Latest details so far.
Just before school closures I did manage to visit one local school. I had a wonderful afternoon at Gawber Primary in Barnsley with the Super Stars in year 2.

First of all we learned some amazing facts about frogs. I read from the book and then we drew tadpoles together from stencils. We then cut them out and then added them to a GIANT Bug Belly school pond frieze.
