He has also made contributions to many of Templar’s best known series’, including Maurice Pledger’s Peek and Find series, and Derek Matthews’ highly successful Happy Snappy® series, for which he has written many books. He has edited many other books, has created Picture This... and Alphabet with Alison Jay and has also written The Toys’ Easter Surprise and the Little Mouse series.
