My Book - The Hairy Plug Monster is "ace", (if you agree please leave a comment on this blog, because there are a lot of people out there who still dont know about it.)

Apparently I am not being brash enough with my posts and have been advised to be

 "a bit more up front about the fact that I have one of the best children's stories written in ages, but nobody knows about it because I am too busy waffling on about "world cup songs, recipes, events and other stories I have written  etc. and not doing what the blog was originally intended to do

telling people to BUY MY BOOK"

 So this is me telling you - the reader, to buy my book because if you haven't bought it yet and you have young children... you are missing out on a real experience.  There are so many children's books out there which, for want of a better word .... are utter rubbish..I despair sometimes when I go into a bookstore and see the same old tosh again and again.

The Hairy Plug Monster is a book which you will never read only once to your kids....since its publication, I have had hundreds of parents tell me how much they like the book and how often they have had to read it to their kids.

So if you have a copy of the book, please take a moment to leave a comment underneath this post to let everybody else know, because the best way of spreading the news is by word of mouth.

If you haven't got a copy, then you can order one through Waterstones (if they don't already stock it) and any other respectable bookseller throughout the World ( you may have to wait for a few days mind).  If you want a personalised signed copy then order through the website http://www.hairyplugmonster.com/

You might be wondering why I have changed the writing style of my blog to a more direct approach?.  Well the answer is quite simple, we have another 3 books to publish including the much awaited Spooky Stories, which may never happen until we sell more copies of The Hairy Plug Monster. 
5000 books is about 76 cardboard boxes and if we bring out the next three books, we just won't have anywhere to put another 15,000 the combined weight alone is about 4 tons, which would severely test the floor of the office where we currently store them.



  1. It's one of my daughter's favourite books, and she says hello to the plug monster every bath time. A wonderful book, well written and beautifully illustrated.
