Chae Strathie - Author

About the Author

Chae Strathie is an award-winning children’s author and journalist who grew up in a tiny village surrounded by a forest in Scotland, which probably explains a lot. His first attempt at professional writing was creating a Star Wars comic at the age of seven. He sold two copies and made a total of four pence. A regular at major book festivals, Chae has toured the length and breadth of the UK and visited schools as far afield as Romania, reading his stories, acting the goat and singing silly songs about worm ice cream and beard-growing. He lives by the sea in Fife with his wife, three annoying cats and a very old goldfish called Lazarus.

Pinkie and Boo

Author: Chae Strathie Illustrator: Francis Martin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/05/2021

Multi award-winning author Chae Strathie teams up with illustrator Francis Martin for this fabulously funny story about a feisty little girl, her toy monkey and the mischievous adventures they get up to. Francis's vibrant, quirky illustrations bring this story to life capturing the wonders of the imagination and the chaos that ensues when Pinkie and Boo get together. Pinkie loves being the smallest in her family, but the arrival of a baby means everything is about to change. It seems like the tiny new addition to the family will get all the attention . . . and Pinkie isn't happy about that. To cheer her up Mum and Dad give her a lovely toy monkey called Boo. But it turns out there's much more to him than meets the eye - at least in Pinkie's imagination. Their outrageous efforts to regain some attention lead to a whole lot of mess and mayhem, but everything works out happily in the end
