Family, friendship, sharing, vacations, and apartment living are just some of the things that are celebrated in this charming children’s book!
Fergus Barnaby is so excited! Mom, Dad, and Fergus are about to go away on vacation for a few days of fun in the sun. But first… Dad tells him to pack everything he needs, and now Fergus has a problem. Fred has his bucket and shovel, Emily Rose has his swimming goggles, and Teddy has his kite. Fergus lives on the first floor, but his friends—and the toys he let them borrow—are all upstairs. So many stairs, so little time! Will Fergus and Daddy remember to pack everything they need to bring? (Hint: this story ends with a surprise and a big laugh!) Lots of bold illustrations and an enchanting story about friendship and life in the city will make Fergus Barnaby one of your child’s favorites.
David Barrow is Children’s Book author and illustrator and a graduate of the Children’s Book Illustration MA at Anglia Ruskin Cambridge School of Art. Whilst on the course, David created his first picture book, Have you seen Elephant? He won the Sebastian Walker award for new talent in Children’s Book illustration at his Masters show and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Since then he has produced several Picture Books for numerous publishers, including the Kate Greenaway nominated Troll Stroll and Fergus Barnaby Goes On Holiday.
Before becoming an author/illustrator David tried a variety of occupations including a brief and largely unsuccessful career as a “Rock Star” (although he still harbours the belief that he will headline Madison Square Garden one day). Also, he was almost in The Fall. Long story…
David now lives in the wilds of Northamptonshire in England with his wife Jo and son Teddy.
