Fergus Barnaby and his parents try to leave for their holidays in this wonderfully entertaining debut picture book.
A heart-warming, stylish and delightfully funny celebration of friendship and kindness in the heart of the big city, from Sebastian Walker Award winner David Barrow.
Fergus Barnaby is going on holiday. He has packed his suitcase... but there's something missing.
He has lent his bucket and spade to Fred!
And his swimming goggles to Emily Rose!
And his kite to Teddy!
Off he goes to fetch them again and again - will the holiday ever begin?
David was shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize 2016 with Have You Seen My Elephant.

David has been a shelf-stacker, a library assistant, a call-centre worker, a civil servant and a printer, so obviously it was only a matter of time before he tried his hand at writing and illustrating children's books. He joined the world-renowned Children's Book Illustration MA at Anglia Ruskin CSA. It turns out he actually found it a lot harder than all of the above, but ultimately a lot more rewarding.
Whilst on the course, David created his first picture book, Have you seen Elephant? which was published in 2015. He won the Sebastian Walker award for new talent in children's book illustration at his degree show and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
David's next book Fergus Barnaby Goes On Holiday was released in June 2017 and he is now in the process of developing more picture books. He lives in Kettering with his toughest critics: partner Jo, son Teddy and cat Sofia.
