Words are my world. I've always wanted to write - always. When my book came out last year it was a total dream come true. And now I'm working on my second, but that won't see the light of day for a while yet.
Being invited to contribute to a children's book was a chance that came out of the blue. The email was a little cryptic, mentioning illustrators and chapters and imagination, but there it was in black and white. An invitation for me and the kids to think up ideas for a beautiful story for kids wasn't one we could turn down. We said YES.
Harrison & Hugo's Imaginary Zoo is a collaborative book by illustrator Tom Percival along with eight other collaborators. It's packed with colourful characters and tells the tale of two friends who go on an adventure. The theme to the story is never letting your imagination run out which ties in with the HP service 'instant ink'. The service works by automatically ordering you new ink online when it senses your printer is about to run out of HP ink cartridges, it also can make buying printer cartridges a lot cheaper too by opting for different plans according to your needs. Find out more about the HP Instant Ink service and see how the book is coming along here.
Each week another page will be added and you can keep up with the story by following the hashtag #neverrunout.
It was such a treat designing our spread. My littlest boy, T, is notoriously obsessed with bats and all things spooky. We couldn't resist including this bat in our spread - we're both enchanted with the rainbow trail he leaves as he flies. Isn't it beautiful?
We're so happy to have been asked to take part in such a fun and interesting campaign, and can't wait to get our hands on a copy of the finished book.
