Alison Steadman is wring her debut children’s book.
Sadly, it’s not about her “little prince” as her character Pam describes son Gavin in Gavin & Stacey.
It will be called Spider!
The story follows a small boy who thinks he hates spiders, until he befriends one.
Steadman has written the text and the illustrations will be provided by Mark Chambers.
Steadman said: “A young friend of mine, Rafael, gave me the idea for the book – he was afraid of spiders, and I had a chat to him about how they aren’t scary at all.
His mum told me the next day that I’d completely converted him, and that sparked an idea for a book.”
Spider! Will be published in October.
