There are many action-packed double spreads throughout which gave me a chance to play with a slightly graphic style.
Familiar as I am with drawing Pirates and parrots, this story was another challenge to illustrate as I wouldn't say drawing diggers and racing cars are my strong point! So I was a little worried when a digger was to feature on the cover and then a racing car on the back! I'm sure there will be some digger experts to guide me when I take this book to school classrooms over the coming year. Look out for those comparisons later!

Test your skills with fun puzzles, spot the difference and dot-to-dot. Colour, sprinkle sparkle and decorate Princess Swashbuckle's dress as she leaps to the Grand Frog's Ball.

I loved creating the characters in this book - and there are plenty! - even though we begin with froggy characters we soon leave the palace in Frogland to encounter all sorts of animals in far off places. Offering skills and friendship on their journey, Princess Swashbuckle steers her crew on a new course. This is no frilly princess stuck in a tower waiting to be married off to any ol' frog prince. She has a vision....!
