Benjamin Owen, Where Are You Going?

I am pleased to announce that my first project for this final year is complete. For the past 7 weeks I have been slaving away, putting my absolute all into this first piece and I can't be more chuffed! I introduce to you all my finished product; an educational children's picture book, 'Benjamin Owen, Where Are You Going?'

The book, targeted at children aged 3-6 years, helps to show the dangers around the home focusing on five areas; kitchen, lounge, stairs, bathroom and garden. With my hand-drawn illustrations and accompanying rhyme children are able to pinpoint what hazards they see in each room, teaching them what can be harmful to their little hands.

I wish to say a big thank you to Blurb for publishing my book to such a high standard. Having never used them before I was a bit anxious as to what the outcome would look like, but I really couldn't be happier.

Currently looking into making it available to the public to buy but doing my research first for somewhere that does it at a good price. Unfortunately I find Blurb a little too pricey and even I'm put off by the prices it would be sold at.

Dimensions: 7x7"
Cover: Hardcover, image wrap
Paper: Premium Lustre 148GSM


  1. This is a really cool idea. Parent's should buy-in to it. Does each page feature the same kind of layout... with the back of the monkey's head and the interior of a room?

  2. Yes, the layouts are all similar. I wanted to create the feeling that the reader is looking into the room themselves, taking the place of the monkey.
