Leon Bites 

cover - Leon BitesIllustrated by Eleanor Taylor
Published by Bloomsbury

Leon the lion wonders what will happen if ... ‘Hey!’ says his Mum. ‘Ouch!’ roars his Dad. ‘Leon, don’t bite!’

‘I’m only playing,’ says Leon, and he rushes away to find more opportunities for biting.

I wrote this story after first my daughter, and later my son, thought they would try out their gums on my shoulder... it’s one of the few stories I’ve written with an overt message: Don’t Bite!
