Share their adventure in a heartwarming story of love, loss and the power of imagination. The story’s themes are multilayered, insightful and positive – offering an overriding optimistic message about love and connection.
The Outside Is Inside was ‘highly commended’ by Roger McGough CBE, in The 2020 Caterpillar Poetry Prize. The rhyming story has been brought to life by uniquely eye catching Lino print collage illustrations.
