Hello! 

The Greatest Disappointment 

To help occupy my mind and hands over lockdown, I wrote and illustrated a story. My lockdown looked a lot like this, sat cross-legged on the floor surrounded by paper and paints ...

The story is now a published book. A real life book! With pages and everything! 

It is called The Greatest Disappointment. Inspired by all of lockdown's little tragedies - like the unseen school plays and the uncelebrated birthday parties - the story follows the misadventure of a particularly brave coddiwomple named Bernard. 

The story served its purpose for me by keeping my sane while making it up. But now it's possible to do, I would love to share it with you! If it can give you an encouragement or a chuckle, while also supporting cause that is so important, then I will be a happy bunny indeed. 

Donations to Help Refugees and Cost Breakdown

The profits from each sale of a £10 book will be donated to Help Refugees. Help Refugees fund grassroots organisations that support displaced people fleeing war, persecution and climate change. Their work is all the more important as these individuals also are enduring the pandemic's impacts too. 

You can find more information about Help Refugees and their partner campaign Choose Love on their website here. I've chosen to support them  as their model of partnering with local organisations  on the ground means that resources can be efficiently directed to reach reach who need support, without huge overhead costs.
