C.P. Thompson Press

I have been creating and publishing illustrated books independently under micro-publishing label C.P. Thompson Press since 2017


Below is a list of book projects I have worked on and published so far.

In addition to the publications listed here, I also regularly publish booklets and create resources around the theme of creative play as part of my work as one half of Naturally Creative Early Years, you can find these for sale alongside all of the picturebooks listed below on our early years website and shop


From the Shadows (2022)

Suitable for all ages

As we follow a child’s journey through waking and sleeping hours, an imaginative dream world emerges from the shadows...

While providing a stimulus for shadow play, transient art, outdoor creativity and enquiry into nature, From the Shadows shows how adult reassurance and a growing understanding of the world enables us to overcome fears and approach our experiences with joy and curiosity once inner calm is restored.

Transient Rhymes and Jingles (2021)

Suitable for all ages

Twenty traditional nursery rhymes and jingles re-imagined through transient art!

Rain Child (2021)

Suitable for all ages

The story follows an enthusiastic child and an initially reluctant grown-up as they venture outdoors into the wild, watery landscape of a rainy day...

Created using transient methods with natural loose parts and watercolour paintings.
