I was childishly pleased when I came up with the series title, Little Horrors. They’re horror stories for small children, whom we often call little horrors themselves. Actually there’s no horror in them at all, just the suggestion. They are meant to be funny with moments of doubt… Shiver with fear.. shake with laughter, as the series slogan goes!
I love reading these stories to Key Stage 1 children. Some hug each other, some pose and pretend they aren’t scared, some burst into tears, but most laugh and join in with the noises and actions. Sadly the publishers, Orchard Books decided not to reprint. But that gave me the opportunity to bring the stories back to life again.
Online, print-on-demand publishing is an amazing thing. The first book in the series, The Swamp Man in now available in old fashioned print and as an ebook for the iPad. When I discovered the Open Dyslexic Font, I made it available as a Dyslexic font edition on the ipad too. The type is weighted so the letters behave themselves and sit on the line and the page colour is cream.

The Swamp Man – Little Horrors book.
The movie and comic book Spiderman are copyright, I’m afraid, so I’ can’t show you how to draw him. But I wrote my own book called “The Spider Man” in my series called Little Horrors. It’s about a creepy guy who is a spider expert and keeps spiders in jam-jars in his pockets! So I can show you how to draw him! Im hoping to do the Little Horrors series as ebooks for iPad quite soon.
