New books, new books, new books!

New books, new books, new books!


We’re making two new books. One will be illustrated by Vanessa Arduini who we LOVE and the other will be drawn by someone NEW. We are in the process of selecting an illustrator this week. It’s a great process and quite challenging because we want to get EXACTLY RIGHT so we make a stonking new book for you all.



I did another storytime at the Paxton Centre in Crystal Palace on Sunday and it was rammed!
I had to really PROJECT MY VOICE – haha. It was great fun and the kids listened very nicely.






A quick note on us: we’re Parakeet Books. We make diverse and inclusive books for everyone. Our stories and characters are universally appealing. We make books with main characters who are people of colour, girls as heroes, characters with different abilities, parents who are the same gender, families with mixed heritage and mixed ethnicity. Quality books are paramount to us – the artwork is sublime, the stories are top notch and the printing and binding are perfect. Follow us on instagram or facebook for more frequent updates. Tata! xx
