Secret project: Gerber and Bertie

I wrote a children’s book about an alien who sees with his ears and hears with his eyes. Yes indeed it does sound odd but it highlights a selection of key areas from the school curriculum, such as parts of the body, opposites and numbers, making it a great addition to a teacher’s kit. Besides it’s a hit with my 4-year-old niece and she knows everything.

Here’s to getting it onto a few bookshelves. And here is a quick image of the main characters, Gerber and Bertie:


I used an image program called Gimp to colour in the illustrations, which took forever because I’m pretty much an amateur with that sort of stuff. However, it looks pretty good…pat on the back Mrs Akbar.
