Dorothy Fibbs

I’ve been working on writing and illustrating a children’s book called ‘Dorothy Fibbs‘.

This bear gets revenge on a little girl who tells lies, about him, mainly.

Matilda

The idea behind it comes from Hilaire Belloc’sMatilda‘.

Belloc was a French poet who was writing in the early twentieth Century, author of the mischievous and humorous ‘Cautionary Tales for Children‘. Part of the reason I love Belloc’s writing so much is because of his wicked sense of humour and his ability to appeal to both younger and older generations.

I’ve also been stealing inspiration from other fantastic writers such as Roald Dahl, Dr Seuss and Lauren Child.

Getting back into all my old books and discovering new ones, in particular Oliver Jeffers‘ picture books, is something I’m really enjoying and I can’t wait to share the end result.
