More About the Author

I'm a children's writer based in Scotland, and most of my fiction is inspired by the Scottish landscape and local legends. I love writing fantasy adventures for 8 - 12 year olds, but I also love creating stories for other age groups. I've written several picture books, including one about bottoms (which I enjoy reading to infant classes!) and a recent retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, with gorgeous pictures by Celia Chauffrey. I've written retellings of myths for slightly older readers, and a contemporary novella called Drawing a Veil. Maze Running, the fourth and final novel in my First Aid for Fairies series, has just been published, so I'm now looking round eagerly for the next novel idea.


Product Description

Review

'Children love being able to say "bottom" without being naughty or cheeky and the charming illustrations are also great fun... It is great fun and just a little bit "cheeky!"' -- Suse Coon, Lothian Life 'Excellent bedtime or early reader. Beautifully told and illustrated, (and children really enjoy the fact 'bottoms' are mentioned many times!)' -- Armadillo 'The Big Bottom Hunt by Lari Don is a delight. There will be giggles of glee as Sandy and Ella set off on their quest to discover whose bottom has left an imprint in the sand!' -- EYE (Early Years Educator) Magazine 'Playing detectives is great fun, and the repetition of the word bottom - plus delightfully realistic pictures - provides even more merriment. -- Julia Jarman, Carousel, Spring 2011

Format: Paperback
Why seek the foot that fits a shoe to determine who shall marry the prince, when you can seek the bottom that fits a bum-print to determine who owns a lost telescope? A unique twist on the cinderella theme, there is no doubt that the main attraction of this book for children is that it is about bottoms!

What children don't know is that the book is awesome brain training, with the logical process of elimination shaping and ordering thought patterns, the next step in the learning process for those who have outgrown That's Not My Monkey, but a similar idea.

This is original, entertaining and educational, and it's not just children who are amused by the subject matter!

Format: Paperback
The scenario - Sandy and Ella are beach combing and find a lovely brass telescope. Too new and shiny to be flotsam, so who does it belong to? The only clue left to our young sleuths is a bottom print left in the sand. They trace the outline and set off around the village to find the owner, with some hilarious results.
Excellent bedtime or early reader. Beautifully illustrated, with the added bonus of 'bottoms' being mentioned many times! Lovely!

Format: Paperback
My wee one's too young to find the many uses of the word 'bottom' and alternatives as funny as I do, but he loves the pictures and the story itself. The sniggers will come along soon enough!
