The Man Who Loved Boxes – 21st Anniversary Edition
I’d been trying to write a succinct picture book text for a few years. There had been a few dozen failed attempts. I woke up one morning at 3am with this story in my head, and I wrote it down then and there.
It is a story about my Dad and me . . . and a dog. It explores themes of creativity, expression and love and has remained in publication ever since. I had a lot of fun creating a new cover for the 2016 Anniversary edition. When I talk with people about my books The Man Who Loved Boxes is often mentioned as a favourite.
The Man Who Loved Boxes has been published in Brazil, China, France, Germany, Korea, United Kingdom and USA.
