Nimesh is walking home from school. Except…there happens to be a shark in the corridor. And a dragon in the library! And why would crossing the road lead to the North Pole? A fun-filled story about a little boy with a BIG imagination, Nimesh the Adventurer will surely make even the dullest journey a dazzling adventure.

'The perfect picture book example of how to celebrate inclusion in modern Britain' – The Independent
'An inclusive, funny, joyous book for all' – Zoe Toft, Playing by the book
'We had to read this book next in our group because one little boy was actually bouncing up and down in his seat and saying, "When are we going to read Nimesh the Adventurer?"' – Cogan Diversity Picture Book Award
I loved this book from the start as my cousin is called Nimesh. I've never seen a kid's book with his name in it. I love the artwork and who can resist a book with a tiger on the front! I love how the adventures are relatable, not so far fetched that you can't imagine you being in them. I'm a 45 year old who didn't read many books as a child but I know I would've enjoyed this as a young reader.
My 4-year old loves playing pretend, so he enjoys this book a lot! 🐯
This fantastic tale about a young storyteller is great fun! My kids love to imagine their own adventures and can really see themselves in Nimesh. Great illustrations too
