Big ups to the organisations making this possible:

and Ben Welch for being some sort of festival ninja!
It seems ludicrous that I haven’t blogged about this yet but…
I wrote this as a little personal experiment on spontaneous storytelling. It was completely improvised. I used my iPhone voice recorder and spoke it line by line, whilst getting my niece to repeat each line as I dreamt it up so that I would have the audio for an animation ready to go.
I knew, once we’d finished recording, we’d found ourselves a real gem! A simple and hilarious story, focusing on what we can do when we are fed up with feeling angry.
So I made a book!
