Listen to some of his stories here: 

Daisy Eat Your Peas

Daisy does NOT like peas. And there is NOTHING that will get her to eat them.

Mum says she can have an extra pudding, a chocolate factory or a space rocket with DOUBLE RETRO LASER BLAMMERS - but it just won't work! Can quick-thinking Daisy save her tea time and come up with a cunning plan to turn the tables on Mum?

Daisy Really, Really

Mum is off out, and Daisy is left with a babysitter for the first time! Will she be good, and stick to the rules? Of course not! Daisy starts telling fibs that she usually eats ICE-CREAM AND CHIPS for tea, NEVER needs a bath and watches telly until MIDNIGHT.

“Really?” asks her babysitter? “Really, really” fibs Daisy.

. . . But what will happen when Mum comes home?

Oi Dog!

Cat is a stickler for rules: cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs and, however irritating, dogs must sit on frogs.
That's until Frog decides to change the status quo ...
But will Cat want to sit on gnats instead of cushy mats? Will spiders like sitting on gliders? Will whales like sitting on nails? And, most importantly, where is FROG going to sit?

Oi Cat!

According to Frog ...
Cats sit on gnats,
Dogs sit on logs,
Alpacas sit on cream crackers,
Armadillos sit on pillows and
Chicks sit on bricks.

But wait! Cat doesn't like sitting on gnats, they keep biting his bottom! Will Frog and Dog help him change the rules?
