About this deal

Jane Clarke (Author) Jane is the author of over 70 books for young children, including the award-winning Gilbert the Great series and Stuck in the Mud.

For whatever reason Mum always drove Brett to the ambulance, otherwise they’d be permanently based on our front lawn.In Britta Teckentrup’s bold illustrations, Leon stands out in electric orange against the gentler greens, grays and blues of the world. He was gigging at Max’s on the regular, seeing the incredible NY punk scene blossom before his eyes, and he even got to appear briefly in the exploitation film classic, Punk Rock (1977) with Elda and the gang. Yesterday a parent came over to tell me how impressed she was by the book fair and that you did a fabulous job of selling the books to the children first.

She's also a children's poet, so she's thrilled to bits to have three new rhyming picture books with Nosy Crow. and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home (created by Random House Children's Books and published by Red Fox.At the club Bad News he met the record company owner Sanyi Tandan who offered him a recording contract and later released the successful single "Movin In The Right Direction" and later the album Artificial Stimulation (1983) with his group Neon Leon And The Bondage Babies. Neon Leon played with his band in Sweden and sometimes in New York as solo artists, played in London and was on tour with bands as Hanoi Rocks, The Lords of the New Church and Johnny Thunders. Then, forever starving, Ben had found that ruddy berry gleaming like amber in a patch of green, and had snaffled it.

To combat the message that a person must "fit in" I would try to focus on the time Leon spent with the flamingos, they were the same yet different. One day he bounded back and proudly announced, “hey Muuuuuum I ate all the green lollies off Ivan’s lawn. From time to time, we would like to keep you up to date with news about Beyond the Stork and special offers. He can't help, for example, that his color keeps the other chameleons awake, so that's something that he shouldn't be blamed for. Your framed print will arrive with D-rings and cord already attached, read y to hang right out of the box.Jane enjoys visiting nurseries and primary schools, and loves animals, country walks, fossil hunts, meeting up with her sons and their families in the UK and USA, and having fun with her baby granddaughter. The story itself is simple but there’s still a satisfying resolution and a heart-warming conclusion about finding a friend and fitting in.

This book is interactive, requesting the participation of the audience to count to ten, whisper the text, and make guesses. It also has a page where children are asked to count along with Leon, incorporating their mathematics counting skills! Therefore, in the yellow desert, where the chameleons blend in to be yellow too, Leon’s orange and stands out!Neon Leon is darling against all the contrasting backdrops and his story is the timeless message of finding a place where you fit in. I understand the message about feeling like one belongs, especially after seeing that there are others in the world like you, but I believe that it could have been worked a little better. After 17 years in the UK, Britta now lives and works in Berlin with her Scottish husband and their son Vincent.
