Storybooks form and shape our childhood often leaving lasting impressions throughout our lives and occasionally a book appears that's impact is so great it transcends generations.
Today I'm joined by Portobello local (situated in Notting Hill, London) and literary legend Michael de Souza, writer and creator of the iconic 'Rastamouse' series.
Rastamouse has gone on to become a hugely children's book and BBC tv show, educating, entertaining and inspiring young kids with its celebration of Afro-Caribbean and British culture. Michael's books exemplify diversity, strong role models and positive vibes throughout and we discuss in depth his work including some of his latest projects; this episode touched many topics close to both our hearts and made for an insightful and honest account.
Michael continues to works closely with schools in the UK delivery workshops to children, he also discusses the launch of his latest series and work on book centred around his first passion a swimming coach and consult over 30 year career teaching across the globe.
