A few Christmases ago I posted a poem on my blog that I had written for Arlo, my first grandchild. He loved the poem, and the book I made him that Christmas has been kept safely in his Christmas book bag and brought out each year.
At the beginning of 2022 I decided to look for an illustrator and start the journey of self publishing my poem. My search led me to ‘Rosie Young’ a lovely illustrator from Wirksworth in Derbyshire and that journey began.
Its been fun, interesting and I have learned a lot. I have also made a new friend as Rosie and I have had many conversations around the poem and illustrations, until finally it was complete and time to go to print.
It is at the moment available from me at a price of £7.99 + postage. Do email me on my contact page if you would like a copy. I can send them from 18th November.
I now have 3 grandchildren and they will defintely all be getting one in their stockings this year., although Arlo did say he didnt need one as he has the original 🙂
