World Tsunami Awareness Day

November 5th is World Tsunami Awareness day, and to commemorate, the UNISDR has launched this free booklet which I illustrated, to educate children (and adults!) about tsunamis.

You can download the free booklet in PDF form here. Please share it with everyone you know! The more people who know how to recognise a tsunami, and how to be prepared, the better.


The booklet contains simple facts, history and advice about tsunami preparedness, and also a fictional short story featuring the COPE squad who get caught in the Japan 2011 tsunami.

I worked closely with Martha Keswick, the writer of the story, Tim Sim, the editor, and also Sandy Lui, the graphic designer. I really hope that this book will help to save lives.


There is a new website here for the COPE series of books. If you would like to help us find distributers/partners, or have any good ideas, please contact us here.
