A funny story matched by even funnier illustrations... guaranteed to make little ones giggle!’ AH Benjamin (popular children's author)
London, England (PRWEB UK) 6 November 2013
Moo! Said Morris is the latest picture book from innovative new children’s publisher, Digital Leaf http://www.digitalleaf.co.uk/
Written and illustrated by Jon Lycett-Smith it’s laugh-out-loud funny but, be warned, it doesn’t come quietly!
The book tells the tale of Morris, a mouse for whom squeaking isn’t enough. He’d rather say ‘Moo!’ In fact he’d rather say ‘Moo,’ ‘Quack,’ ‘Baa,’ or even 'Vroom', and he’s only just getting warmed up!
Young children aged 3-6 years will love to join in with the fun of this story as Morris proves that he is no meek mouse when it comes to standing up for himself in this noisy barnyard adventure.
This is Jon’s third picture book title, his first two – Kitten Kid, Where Are You? and Bear and Bee were published by Walker Books. Jon has recently returned to his first love of picture books following his ‘escape from the games industry’ where he is probably best known for his hilarious illustrations for award-winning apps such as Mum’s Cronky Car by Anita Pouroulis, and Richard Stanton’s, What Will I Be? also published by Digital Leaf.
The managing director of Digital Leaf, Neil Jeffries, said, ‘Moo said Morris is a book that makes everyone smile. It’s feel-good with a capital ‘F’ but beyond that there’s a big message for kids: that it is OK to be different. This is a story with lots of heart.’
The Moo Said Morris app is in development now so kids can look forward to some noisy swiping later this year.
Digital Leaf has quickly established itself as a prime mover in publishing original children’s stories as interactive apps, but has expanded its operations over the past twelve months to develop its printed book business.
