My first book!
One morning I woke up with a Hoppleplop in my head. I jumped out of bed and started writing straight away. By lunchtime I had the story finished. “Easy peasy!” I thought. But it never happened THAT easy again. My house is a bit like the Hoppleplop house. Sadly, there are no Hoppleplops or even any pesky Ooblangitangs for miles. I used to have a cat called Momo, but she died last year. She was very old.

The Hoppleplop rides again
Revised and extended Creators’ Edition. Since it was first published in 2004, I’ve been amazed and thrilled by the number of kids who have told me it’s their favourite book and the number of parents who have contacted me wondering where they might replace their read-to-death copy. I’ve even had several kids turning up as Hoppleplops at school Book Week Dress Up days.
The book has been completely re-designed with a brand new cover plus a “behind-the-scenes” look at the story’s creation.
Hardcover $28 plus p&p, Softcover $20 plus p&p. Available at all good bookstores or you can order a signed copy directly from me using the PayPal button below or by messaging me with details.
