“This gorgeous novel is a funny and sweet examination of what it means to live quietly and on your own terms. It’s like a warm hug of a book and will make you look at the world with a smile.” Bob

“Life has a way of changing; for Leonard it comes in the death of his mother, while for Hungry Paul it is the upcoming wedding of his sister. Together, they have been living a quiet existence but now they must learn to make some noise in a world that doesn’t fully understand them. This story is a cup of tea in a book – it is warm, comforting, and best shared with friends. If you enjoy quirky, loveable characters and an offbeat sense of humour then this is for you.” Rebekah

LEONARD AND HUNGRY PAUL is the story of two friends who ordinarily would remain uncelebrated. It finds a value and specialness in them that is not immediately apparent and prompts the idea that maybe we could learn from the people that we overlook in life. Leonard and Hungry Paul change the world differently to the rest of us: we try and change it by effort and force; they change it by discovering the small things they can do well and offering them to others.
