Picture Books

These are books with a simple storyline and plenty of illustrations, meant for children up to six years.

Writing a picture book story is a little bit like walking a tightrope because the story has to be short, funny and intelligent enough for children to like. The strangest things have inspired me to write picture book stories – making rotis, a big brown box, an umbrella, mangoes, even string!
