Where I try and analyse a popular picturebook to try and understand how the story is constructed and email it out about once a week.

These are not reviews, but a breakdown of how the plot and characters are put together to make a compelling story that children will want to read again and again.

My ultimate goal? To try and write better stories (I’m an illustrator first, writing is new for me).

Subscribe to get a new picturebook analysis each week (ish).
