Thereʼs A Lion In My Bathroom is a beautiful collection of nonsense poetry by author Giles Paley-Phillips. The book contains a selection of hilarious poems accompanied by striking illustrations by talented new illustrator Matthew Dawson. This book, intended for children, is equally appealing for adults of all ages who have retained their adolescent sense of humour. With a percentage of the profits from the sale of each copy of the book being donated to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, whatʼs not to love? Find out why Robin Hood lost an archery competition and how a bullied shark managed to save the day and turn the tables on his bullies.
Giles Paley-Phillips lives in Seaford with this family. He is a doting father and part-time rock star, this collection was obviously written with the intention of making his children smile. Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research is a charity dear to his heart, having sadly lost his mother to the disease when he was six years old.
