Please run this release immediately, with the following header – The Little House that didn’t have a home –



The main character in this illustrated book is a cheeky and plucky little house that doesn't have a place to live. So he packs his bag, and he and his best friend Bear set off into the big wide world to find themselves their 'forever home.' Along the way they encounter lots of interesting characters, some nice, some sad, some not so nice, and some very rude characters indeed!

However, the Little House is no quitter; he never gives up. And just when we think that he and Bear will remain forever homeless, something surprising turns up. The story of the Little House is told in clever, engaging and amusing rhyme. The illustrations are beautifully detailed and well observed, and include caricatures of high-rise flats, country mansions, floaty boats, and a very busy, whizzy caravan. If you love a good adventure, if you love funny pictures, if you delight in clever storytelling, you will love The Little House that didn't have a home. And if you love a happy ending, the fun starts here!

Neil has over 25 years’ experience in the advertising industry as a copywriter and art director, creating hundreds of funny TV ads.

Neil has always had a keen interest in writing and drawing funny kid’s books and cartoons. He uses his insightful advertising communication skills to connect with parents and children alike. All his 'Ollie And Nina And ...' stories about his two dogs are based on insightful truths with a teeny bit of artistic license thrown in for added humorous effect. Neil likes to observe the silly doggie things Ollie and Nina do, and use that as inspiration to create his hilarious cartoon strips.

Neil has two delightful grandchildren, Chloe, 9 years old and Eve, 3 years old. Neil always has both of his grandchildren in mind while thinking up and writing his children's books. He is always thinking about how to make them laugh and show them new things that will make them think. Neil likes to include a little bit of education in his stories, helping children observe the world through interesting and colourful illustrations and intriguing and entertaining stories, sometimes told in clever rhymes
