Purple Ronnie

I sat listening to Giles Andreae talk about “How to write successful picture books” when he mentioned that he was the creator of Purple Ronnie. Now I had no idea what this author had done to be giving a masterclass, but Purple Ronnie was one of my favourite greeting cards at university, with its weird rhymes and off beat humour.
