Madcap Library

The Libraneer by Hannah BotmaAn imaginary Library, populated by random and strange characters – including the Libraneer, a pirate who rides a trolley through the silent shelves, stealing books as he goes; a sloth who works as a shelf duster but dreams of flying; Percy, neat and tidy and utterly efficient; Clio, an out-of-work goddess who inspires poets when not cataloguing books; Howard the Hoover, planning to take over the world just as soon as he’s got the Library clean and tidy; Joyce, hunter of rare books and fighter of political texts; the Emergency Librarian; the OOK Squad of Ninjas; and many more!

The SlothAt the moment I’m working on a series of children’s stories featuring the Sloth, who is my absolute favourite character. He’s a speed freak, bundle of trouble, happy grinner and eater of chocolate. We’ve got about seven stories so far and there are more ongoing!

There’s a freebie short story about the Sloth in epub, mobi and pdf format.

Illustrations have been done by the wonderful Hannah Botma, who can be found at or on Facebook.
