Lively Lila: A Dance of Happy Discovery, from the breakthrough author-illustrator Ben Levey, is now available to purchase in Waterstones book shops. Worldwide rights to the picture book were acquired by Tiny Tree publisher in December 2023.

The third book released by Levey is an infectious and encouraging picture book with a focus on ADHD. The story follows Lila as she handles life’s ups and downs, showing readers a little of what it’s like to live with the condition. This bright and bold journey is full of fun, with a focus on resilience, creativity and self-discovery. This inspiring picture book asks readers to embrace the roller-coaster of life.

Previously speaking on the story, Levey commented: “This book, born from a deeply personal place, represents not just a story, but a part of my heart and soul. Lila is a character who has lived in my imagination for years, dancing her way through challenges and joys alike, embodying the spirit of resilience and creativity. This book is my ode to all the Lila’s out there – those vibrant souls who see the world in a unique and beautiful light. I’m excited to see how the story resonates with parents, children and educators alike.”

Other children’s books by Levey include Home Sniffle’s Home – following the colourful hedgehog, Sniffles, as she witnesses the arrival of builders in her lush forest home; Icy’s Adventure: Freezing The Heat – a story that helps young children understand the complex issues surrounding global warming; Ricky Raccoon – which tells the tale of a clever raccoon with a penchant for mischief and unwanted treasure; and The Skeleton Farmers – a tale of a pair of whimsical skeletons who have a peculiar knack for planting bones and reaping the most unusual harvests
