Charming Curiosities: The Story Behind ‘The Bim-Bam Boozle Bird’ and Its Talented Manchester-Born Team


[DIDSBURY, MANCHESTER. 22 January 2024] A Manchester-born family has launched their first children’s picture book, The Bim-Bam Boozle Bird.

Author, Eileen Morrison, and graphic designer and illustrator, Tommy Morrison have created a quirky character sure to peak the curiosity of toddlers and young children. The Bim-Bam Boozle Bird is perfect for reading aloud with its rhyming text and whimsical story, each page boldly illustrated.

Inspired by listening to her grandfather’s made-up rhymes and funny words, Eileen put pen to paper to create her own poem – a rare, exotic bird that flies and sleeps upside-down, surrounded by wild nature.

“I really enjoyed creating the book and would be delighted if children fell in love with the Bim-Bam Boozle bird like I did as soon as I saw Tommy’s illustrations. It was like being little again, inside my own book. Working with my son has been a pleasure and he’s been amazing at interpreting my ideas.”

Eileen lives in Didsbury with her husband. Her son, Tommy, now lives in Birmingham.

“I’m excited to get the book out into the world and I hope that children enjoy the character. I was inspired by my mum’s poems and it’s been great to collaborate on the book together.”

The mother and son duo are continuing to create more stories together.

The Bim-Bam Boozle Bird is now available at Giddy Goat Toys, Albert Hill Street, Didsbury or UK-wide at www.giddygoattoys.co.uk.
