'Learn to draw Cat and Dog' compliments my early years series showing how to draw and write a short story.
Great for infants. I do this drawing a lot with great success. Picture included.
Also I’m publishing my Mega Minds series with Archimedes, the man who invented the Death Ray and Euclid the Man who invented Geometry. Newton is planned.
"Thank you, Shoo, for a brilliant day. We are all fizzing with excitement!! Every child really enjoyed your amazing talks – they are all reading your books frantically. They have been inspired and motivated, taking your advice to invent characters and use mind-mapping to write their stories, from the youngest child to the oldest pupil in school."
