Mr. and Mrs. Deer would love a baby, and one day they find a little antlered bundle on the doorstep. Mrs. Deer thinks their wish has come true; Mr. Deer thinks that the baby is very, very peculiar. When the baby won't stop roaring, they ask advice from family and friends but it takes wise old Granny Bear to spot the problem: the baby's not a baby - it's a little monster. A very greedy little monster at that . . . and why have all their friends mysteriously disappeared?

He has been shortlisted three times for the Royal Mail Award for Scottish Children's Books.
