Little Leaf Books is all about kids. Happy Children.

Helen and I decided to start Little Leaf Books because she has so many stories tucked away gathering dust. We thought children (and adults too) would love to read them and Helen put the stories and illustrations together, using multi-medium techniques to make wonderful reading. Linda organised the layout and production of the books.

Children always love books with pictures and colour, and that is what Helen and Linda have created. The range of stories are enjoyable for all ages, from very young right through to mature adult.
