Illustrated by the bravissima Benedetta Capriotti my debut picture book I’m Not Cute, I’m Dangerous is about a cute crocodile who tries very hard to prove herself to others… and she does. But only when she understands she’s perfect as she is.
I aim to make sessions lively and interactive, and to nurture a love of books and stories. With younger age groups, this might involve the use of props, puppets, songs and arts and crafts. With older children, I use picture books to illustrate the main beats that underpin stories, encouraging them to use these elements to shape their own writing.
