Meet Children's Author Lizi Jackson

Matty the Mouse has been keeping a sad secret…he is different from the rest of his family. No matter how hard he tries to be the same as his Mum and Dad he just doesn’t seem to fit in.  Will Matty realise that being different is what makes him so special?

“I Don’t Like Cheese” is a story about accepting differences in both ourselves and others, and discovering the happiness that comes from enjoying our differences rather than being ashamed of them.

 I Don't Like Cheese is Lizi's first published story. She's been writing poems and rhyming stories for her friends for over twenty-five years, so is extremely excited to have her name on the cover of a book at last!  Lizi was inspired by her children to write I Don't Like Cheese, and is currently working on her second picture book, Hula Petula, as well as a children's novel about the life of a boy with autism.

I feel so ashamed that I've never liked cheese.

Please tell me what I ought to do?

I wish I was like every other small mouse.

I wish I could be more like you.
