An established children's writer is donating a percentage of the profits from his latest book to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

There’s A Lion In My Bathroom is a beautiful collection of nonsense poetry by author Giles Paley-Phillips. The book contains a selection of hilarious poems accompanied by striking illustrations by talented new illustrator Matt Dawson.

Though intended for children, the book is equally appealing for adults of all ages who have retained their adolescent sense of humour. And with 25% of the profits from the sale of each copy being donated to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, what’s not to love? Find out why Robin Hood lost an archery competition and how a bullied shark managed to save the day and turn the tables on his bullies.

Giles Paley-Phillips lives in Seaford with this family. He is a doting father and part-time rock star, this collection was obviously written with the intention of making his children smile. Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research is a charity dear to his heart, having sadly lost his mother to the disease when he was six years old.

Illustrator Matthew Dawson lives in Surrey with his pencils, vast amounts of paper and not enough room for a dog. He also works as a graphic designer but has a passion for illustration which is evident in his work, you can see more of his work at

Released by Rebel Books LLP, a new independent publishing house based in the North West, this is their third publication to date. Dedicated to producing beautiful timeless books for children and young adults, they believe There’s A Lion In My Bathroom is a very special title.
