I thought I would share my latest project, a children’s book!

The Odd Birds is a fictional children’s book aimed at ten to twelve years old in the steampunk/fantasy genre which embraces, as the first in a series, weird and wondrous worlds. Alongside illustrations, the book portrays the relationship between a mother and her daughter as they journey in their sky-ship in the hope of discovering the origin of a mysterious egg they found one morning.

From a grumpy old crow who communicates with a giant tree, to an elephant bird whose head can reach into space, their travel takes them further from home as they journey out of their world. Exploring the solar system and its inhabitants, the mother, the daughter and a clever cat encounter many odd birds.
