The Misunderstood Dragon

The Misunderstood Dragon is a new picture book I'm working on at the moment - the idea started when I suddenly woke up at 4am one morning and then couldn't sleep again because I was busy working it all out in my head. The big mistake I made was to not write it all down at the time - thinking I had no pen and paper and that I'd remember by morning anyway (never thought to use my ipad which was next to me) Well as it turned out I did forget most of the story but luckily had enough still in my head to come up with something similar (maybe) and better (possibly). I'm not going to tell you what it's about yet but will show you some sketches that I've been working on to develop some characters.

These (along with the Colin the Sheep ideas) will be my project for the summer - I'm aiming to get the ideas ready to show publishers by the end of the Summer in the hope that at some point they make it into print.

I still don't have a date for when Amelia and the Elf is due out but I as soon as I know I'll be shouting out the date to you all - should be really soon though (really excited to see my first published illustrations)

As promised here are some new pictures for The Misunderstood Dragon - (don't judge me too harshly they are only sketches so may contain a few errors)


  1. Wow! Really nice sketches, Lynn! Looking forward to hearing more about the book.
