Leonie Lord

Leonie Lord is an internationally acclaimed illustrator – known for the Whiffy Wilson books about a wolf who wouldn't wash and most recently Lottie Potter wants an Otter by Jeanne Willis. But here's the thing, it turns out Leonie is an author too! We're over the moon that she's bringing us the first book which she's both written and illustrated Sofa Dog. And what a delightful book it is too.

Sofa Dog loves his sofa - and there's NO ROOM for ANYONE ELSE! Unfortunately, all sorts of crazy characters want to share it with him: two cats; three aunties; several rabbits; some orangutans, and even a prize-winning pony. What on earth is a sofa-loving dog to do? Join in the mayhem, and discover just how much you can squish on one sofa!

Leonie will be sharing her story and also doing the illustration too. How clever is that! It’s Leonie’s first visit to Wychwood and she has asked me to say that she is really looking forward to meeting you!!!
