Captain Cleo book release

Martin Aitken, one of our Creative Producers working on our Safe Harbour Open Sea project, will soon be releasing his third children’s book – Caption Cleo and The Farmyard Friends.  

Caption Cleo and The Farmyard Friends is a feel good story inspired by, and dedicated to, the animals at Waulkmill Menagerie Petting Farm. The main character, Caption Cleo, is an Australian emu beloved by all the animals on the farm. Caption Cleo keeps everyone on the farm happy, making sure everything runs smoothly. The story is told with great wit, and Aitken’s mastery of writing for children shines through. Caption Cleo’s adventures are captured with bright and charming illustration by Barry Davian.  

Caption Cleo and The Farmyard Friends is all set to be published on 14 March 2022.
