Book Launched: The Little Girl Who Forgot How To Dance

My children's book The Little Girl Who Forgot How To Dance is now on sale. Illustrated beautifully by fellow folk singer Tracey Curtis.

The Little Girl Who Forgot How To Dance

Nemira loves to dance - but her dreams are shattered and now she has forgotten how. Will she ever dance again - and will she discover what dancing is really for?

"5 Stars. The theme of ‘following your dreams and being true to yourself,’ was well done. In fact, the author did an excellent job in pulling together many different aspects, art, rhythm, theme and vocabulary, to make this an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend this for children or for parents to read to their children, both girls and boys." - GoodReads

"A beacon through the fog of lies"

”In dark days like these, songs like Alun’s are needed more than ever and they shine like a beacon through the fog of lies, disinformation and propaganda to present a working class view of reality. Great singer, great guitarist, great songwriter and hugely entertaining in live performance.”

"Songs that address the world we live in now"

“Powerful stuff. There is something essentially Liverpool about the songs and the sound. Songs that address the world we live in now.”

"Tremendous breadth of lyrical ambition"

“A tremendous breadth of lyrical ambition – glorious. An incurable champion of ordinary people.”
