I followed this with One Night in Beartown  in 2020 and a festive sequel, One Christmas in Beartown, in 2021. All three were illustrated by Si Clark and published by Full Media.

Book Reviewer, Readers' Favorite

One Night In Beartown is a glorious book that deserves to be snapped up by a production company and turned into a Christmas tradition along with those well known animations of books by Raymond Briggs or Julia Donaldson.”  ★★★★★
