Tales from the Zali Bukola System

Tales from the Zali Bukola System” is a series of illustrated rhyming children’s books.

The first in the series,”The Horrible Alien Visitor” is about The Zalians, who live on planet Zali, and the Bukies, who live on planet Bukola. They happily have nothing whatsoever to do with each other … until Bogon the Beast of Beta Centuri becomes a common foe for them all.

The book won an award in the 2011 London Book Festival and received an Honourable Mention in the 2011 Hollywood Book Festival (‘Wildcard’ entrant in both festivals).

The second book in the series is called “Zen’s Garden” and is about Zen, who is one of many gardeners who live on the planet Gro, and is not at all liked by the head gardener Stern. Zen discovers that his flowers bloom and grow beautifully when he sings to them, but Stern has no love for Zen’s singing and decides to make life very tough for both Zen and his flowers.

I am currently working on the third book in the series, called “X and Y”.
