I really enjoyed writing these four readers for Ransom. Two of them are storybooks, both brilliantly illustrated by Brian Fitzgerald.
'The Mouse and the Magic Socks' was inspired by seeing an old caravan in a Swedish forest, and wondering who might live there. 
'Dragon Island' is the story of two children who discover a desert island, where they help a young dragon search for its treasure. 

I wrote 'Jumpers' because it's so important that children should want to know about the everyday world around them, and Iíve always been interested in textiles. 'Decorating Sabir's Roomí is essentially a family story, part of many familiesí experience.
