My first book THIS IS BIRMINGHAM: A Glimpse of the City’s Secret Treasures (a history of the18th-century Lunar Society) spent nine months on Waterstone’s Recommended list and was commended by The Guardian. Brummies still buy it as wedding presents, and gifts for friends from abroad.

"...a beautifully illustrated journey along the canals and through the back alleys of Birmingham's rich history. This book will be top of my list not only for children... but also for the grown-up kids still playing hide-and-seek in those back alleys."
- Brian Travers, UB40

"Stunningly illustrated...reads like an adventure through time and place"
- The Guardian

"It was a pleasure to read out loud to my 5 and 7 year old daughters, who were genuinely engaged in this story of how human beings have shaped their environment...
"...the theme of the positivity of human endeavour is universal. It is a rare treat to find books for children which are loved by both parents and children alike, and this will definitely be one of them."
- Amazon review
