Children's Doncaster Read
For June and July
Author Rachel Bright
You don’t have to be big and brave to find your ROAR!
Rachel Bright is author of The Lion Inside, a feel good rhyming story about one little mouse trying to make himself heard and discovering along the way that even the smallest of us has the heart of a lion!
Rachel’s style and storytelling have resulted in an award winning and ever-growing collection of acclaimed picture books (15 published to date with 4 more due for release over the next 18 months).
Rachel lives near the sea with her fiancé Robbie, their daughter River and a dog named Elvis. She has had quite a few former lives, including a stint as an air hostess. She was also once taken hostage by daleks when working as a TV extra on Dr. Who. She collects alphabets and hats.
