A fun new children’s book has been published which follows the adventures of a cab driver’s pet dog Percy around London.

The book is written and illustrated by taxi driver George Quinn. The ‘Taxi Tails’ book joins Tom the cabbie and his pet dog Percy on an adventure around the capital. It’s a perfect storybook to share with the family, whilst also learning a little London Knowledge along the way.

The book is pitched at kids with a reading age between 5-7 years old, however the story and fantastic illustrations will also engage children of a wider age range too.

A printed Taxi Tails book is available to buy from Amazon for £4.99 and is also available on the Kindle platform too.

George T Quinn said: “My stories are inspired by my work as a London cabbie and also by my mischievous border terrier, Percy, who often joins me in the cab. My grandad, Tom, was also a cabbie, after whom I named the cabbie character.

“I have driven a cab for over six years, and am still always learning. London is such an inspirational place to be so there’s always a wealth of new material.”

George added: “I do most of my writing and illustrating while working the ranks!

“My first story ‘The Stamp’ is out now and I am working on the next one in the series which is about Mudlarking!”
