Free sample

Simon and the Birthday Wish is a hilarious and heart-warming tale for children and grown-ups of all ages. It features fifteen illustrations drawn by the author.


What Simon wanted for his seventh birthday was a set of action figures from Planet Patrol, his favourite cartoon. What he got was a tatty second-hand teddy bear.


What Simon doesn't know is that the teddy bear is alive and can do magic.


What the bear doesn't know is that he's not as good at magic as he thinks he is.


When the bear tries to grant a wish for Simon, everything goes wrong, and poor Simon's life is turned inside out, upside down, and sideways. Will things ever go back to the way they were?

About the author

I was born in England in 1970. At the time, my father was a librarian, and my mother was a teacher, so it was probably inevitable that I would grow up loving books. For most of my childhood, my family and I lived in New Zealand, returning to England in 1981. I graduated from the University of York in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in computer science. I now live in Hertfordshire with my partner, where I work as a software developer.
