All the weasels in Westburrow Wood are supposed to follow the rules and fit in. So, imagine their confusion when they meet Wesley, a wacky weasel, who is obsessed with clothes! As the other weasels plot and protest against Wesley, readers will be eager to find out what happens when Wesley escapes to the city and leaves the wood feeling much less colourful. An LGBT dad of two, Wesley was the first text Samuel penned, inspired by his youth growing up in a small Welsh village and being teased and ostricised due to his fashion and outwardly flamboyant nature.

Illustrated by Ryan Sonderegger, a young dad of three from Utah, USA. He has a successful career in special effects for TV and his new passion for illustration hasearned him over 25,000 followers on Instagram. This book was selected by Save The Children for their 2020 #savewithstories, campaign and read by welsh actor Luke Evans.

It was also chosen by Giovanna Fletcher to read on as a bedtime story for her happymumhappybaby instgram channel.
