Much Anticipated

You may or may not have heard the rumours – but YES we are working on a new Lighthouse Keeper book!!!

Thought I’d been a bit quiet recently? Here’s why:

Visuals for the *new book* spread across my studio floor!

You may or may not have heard the rumours – but YES we are working on a new Lighthouse Keeper book!!!

Scholastic came to us a several months ago and took us for a lovely dinner, a new book was suggested and we agreed upon a concept, which as you will see has a very important and topical theme.

Ronda’s done her bit, so now it’s up to me to do justice to her words with some illustrations, with the Lighthouse Keeper brand of colour, detail and humour.

It’s wonderful to be creating a new book, having recently celebrated 40 years since the first Lighthouse Keeper book was published, and to know that new generations of readers are discovering a love of reading through our books.

We’re currently looking at a release date sometime in spring 2020, which will hopefully coincide with a large exhibition of mine featuring original illustrations from the new book. So watch this space for more details in due course.

One thought on “Much Anticipated”

  1. Thanks for letting me know David. I will look for the latest book for grandson No.2 (Marley) as grandson No.1 (Lochie) has all the other lighthouse keeper ones!! Markel born 10 days early on 11 July fit and healthy. He looks identical to his brother at that age!! Tennis on Friday morning doubtful as both Mother Superior and Sandra are away., unless……..Lesley’s availa ke for a set? I will speak to L and F to see what’s happening. Watch this space….. Jx
