Tom wrote: “These incredibly imaginative children from Maindee Primary School have been working on their own books based on my “In Your Book” series and they have absolutely made my day. Brilliant work. Thank you! #childrensbooks #picturebook #reading #writing”

The images he shared were of front covers based on the series, maybe even giving Tom inspiration for his next book in the series.


Maindee Primary School tweeted their delight at the children's work being noticed and liked by the musician-turned-author after seeing the images shared to his 1.7 million Instagram followers.
