Iain is currently composing the scores for two books by the Children’s Laureate, Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, in preparation for recording sessions at Sans Walk with David Tennant as narrator. These are The Rhyming Rabbit and Jack and the Flumflum Tree.

Synopsis: Jack's Granny is sick with a bad case of the moozles! And the only cure is the fruit of the fantastic flum flum tree which grows on the faraway Isle of Blowyernose.

It's a perilous journey, but Jack bravely sets sail, with a motley crew of only three – and a large patchwork sack that Granny has filled with an odd assortment of items from chewing-gum to tent pegs.

But what use will they be against hungry sharks, a leaky boat and a thieving monkey...? - from Pan Macmillan
