exciting new picture books...‚Äč

David Lawrence Jones has written three new picture books, all written in rhyming prose and beautifully illustrated by the very talented Abie Greyvenstein.

   The first "A Pug's Tail" about a pug puppy called Belle born without a tail was released during the fall of 2015. Then a follow up book featuring the same farm animals and a tawny owl called Hoot, titled "Hoot in a Book" will be published early 2017... together with the third adventure in the Jig and Saw series; "Adders without Ladders".

   David is very excited about the three book projects (front covers detailed below), all of which will be available for sale on this site upon release.
