The series of books is illustrated by Cheshire based Nicholas Child.

They are ideal for young readers (5 -9 years old) and for adults to read to youngsters from 3 years of age.

The first book ‘Dai and The Missing Baby Crocodile’ introduced the principal character Dai, who was the subject of mistaken identity. It also featured a very cheeky goat called Gareth, who ‘Gets everywhere’, young readers really love to find him in the books. (Price £6.99)
