Herne Hill children's book - Parrots Don't Live in the City!

Hello Dulwich mums and dads,

I'm a Herne Hill mum with a 7-month old baby and have just launched my first children's story book. It's all about the bolshy, cacophonous parrots of Brockwell Park and encourages children to stop and notice nature all around them. It's written in rhyme and has been illustrated by another local mum, Jenna Herman, who uses line drawings with washes of oil, acrylic and watercolour.

We've also teamed up with the brilliant Bumble Box of Herne Hill, to create a lovely book and bird activity box - perfect for little explorers. Both make a welcome way to fill some summer holiday minutes!

You can find out more at www.doodlesandscribbles.co.uk; or find the book in Tales on Moon Lane, Herne Hill Books and Village Books.

We hope you like them and happy parrot spotting!

That is so brilliant, well done guys!
I love seeing those parrots around - they're in Dulwich Park too and our garden! :-)
Fabulous idea for a book :-)

We have parakeets in our gardens too, also in Goose Green and Peckham Rye Park... noisy skwarky things, but a stunning shade of green.
