All books written by Jo Burke and illustrated by her talented husband, Phillip Price. 


“I wanted to create classic children’s books full of love, wit and charm. I love going into schools and inspiring children to read books, write, and be creative. My characters, verses and stories are unique and will bring a smile to your face whilst celebrating inclusivity and diversity.” 

One of fourteen verses from 'Standing on Custard'
