Although Wise El is the main character, there are many other occasional players, like Mason the chicken, Gum the elephant, Moggford Cat and Muttford Dog, Abraham Ant and many others who appear as and when.

There is also a cartoon book of Wise El’s Book of Big Thoughts on the way, as well as a series of Wise El … covering topics like goal setting, time management, coaching and so on. (Similar themes to those covered in my books.)
