Dot is a small chick who’s scared of lots of things: wolves, bears, the occasional lawn ornament. But when an egg rolls out of her mother’s nest, Dot must pluck up her courage to save the day–and her new sibling! Perfect for kids who need some encouragement to face the challenging world, this story proves that sometimes a big hero is just a little chicken.

My name is Dan. I’m an illustrator. I live and work in the United Kingdom and was born in Staffordshire.
Ever since I was teeny, I have always had a crayon in hand and I would draw and paint all the time when I was young. I loved drawing so much that I went to study art at college and university.
It was there that I discovered my work might be good enough for children’s books (luckily some nice people in publishing thought that too) and the rest is history!
I’m lucky enough to have illustrated many titles for a wide range of publishers in both the UK and the USA.
My most recent title is ‘But the Bear Came Back’ written by Tammi Sauer and published by Sterling which will be available in April 2018.
