Rob Starling began doodling creatures and characters at school and hasn't stopped since. He lives and works in Norwich, and when he's not sketching up new characters or writing down stories he can be found sculpting, brewing coffee, adjusting his headphones or foraging in the kitchen for cake. And, of course, teaching kids. Fergal is Fuming, which was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Award, was his first book.
The Little Island
(Hardback) - 03/10/2019
There was once a farm where all the animals were friends. Together they looked after the farm and each other. It wasn’t perfect and they didn’t always agree (animals almost never do). But they liked it.
One day the geese begin to gossip. Before long they hatch a plan to leave the farm. Will life be perfect now?
A powerful modern-day fable for our times told with humour and warmth, and most importantly, hope. A story of building bridges not barriers, respect not resentment and of finding friendship, not fear.
