Halibut Jackson

Halibut Jackson is a very shy person. He prefers not to be noticed at all. So he makes himself clothing to match his surroundings. His library suit has a striped look to it to match the shelves. But when he is invited to a party at the Palace, he is flummoxed - what does it look like in the palace? At last, having researched hard, and sewn quickly, he is ready: only to discover when he gets there that the party is a garden party. A suit of silver and gold, covered in jewels, is definitely going to get noticed. But everyone admires it tremendously!


"One of the year's most likeable picture book debuts . . . beautiful, detailed, light-hearted street scenes."
Sunday Times

"A sparkling debut."

"A charming book about overcoming shyness."

"The search for Halibut in David Lucas' witty and original illustrations is delightfully satisfying."

"Instant classic - a phrase used, and abused, by publisher's publicists - for once really does spring to mind."
Financial Times
