‘In The Lion’ back in print

It’s been out of print for a while but it’s finally back!

You can grab a copy of my first solo picture book, In The Lion, now.

If you haven’t seen this one before, it’s basically There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly … but if the lady was a lion, and the fly was a dentist, and the lion ate a whole bunch of people and animals in a zoo, and it was up to a small boy to save them all. So, kind of nothing like There Was An Old Lady.

Fun fact: it was a notable for the 2013 CBCA Early Childhood Book of the Year. It’s silly and funny and suspenseful, and always my go-to when presenting to pre-schoolers and early primary.

It’s got a schmick, updated cover, too – I cleaned it up a bit using the tricks I’ve learned in the 10 years since I drew the original. You can compare the differences in the old and new covers below.

Front cover – old version on the left, new version on the right
