While Ross is already a successful author, the book is a first for 18 year old artist James.
It features mischievous Harry who, along with his siblings, is home educated. While he’s learning at home he has all sorts of adventures, some of which he should not be doing.
Who’s Not In School? is the first book from independent, not-for-profit publishing company, Bird’s Nest Books and is receiving rave reviews, particularly for the illustrations which have been described as beautiful, colourful and detailed and a reminder of Shirley Hughes books.
