Mike Smith (Illustrator)

Book in Advance

Just the other day the postman delivered advance copies of my children’s book, due to be published in May by Macmillan. Forgive me if I plug it a bit here as it’s very exciting and has been years in the making.

In the next few weeks I’ll post some pictures from the book to get everybody whipped up into a frenzy of excitement.

    Ooo – the third deck up looks a bit boaty! I wish you well with this, Mike.

    Wonderful! You’ve realised your dream. Brings a little tear to my eye. I will get one for my nephews. :) x

    Thanks everyone!

    It’ll be in the shops but I don’t know which ones yet. It’s on Amazon etc — I’ll post some links at some point.

    Congratulations Mike!
    All your hard work come to fruition – I do hope it sells loads too but how brilliant to see the book completed like that. I’ll keep an eye out (prefer to get it from a shop than Amazon personally), I now have a great-niece to give it to :-)
