It was the night before Halloween, and the Pumpkin house was a hive of activity. Everyone was getting ready for the big celebration except for Pablo. Why? Because Pablo was afraid of the dark.

Advice and Inspiration

Brand Focus


When Tom Willday discovered that you could make business cards from seed paper and grow a flower or plant from that card, he knew there was potential to do more. Eventually, he had the idea of making a children’s book that you could plant, bringing to life its main character. 

Tom is part of a family printing company that has been going strong for 76 years. With all the facilities in place to create a book, and with support from TV Dragon Sara Davies, his pipedream is now a reality. Willsow's mission is to get books into the hands of youngsters and children back into the garden learning, growing and getting the chance to meet their favourite characters.
