The Little Mohee

The Little Mohee is an American ballad and was my first published picture book. I was 22 years old and had just graduated from Hornsey College of Art. The folk song is found all over the USA, but I was inspired by the story of Pocahontas,so I set the illustrations around that period of American history. It was published by Macmillan.


  1. This beautiful book was a great favourite with me, my wife and our children and subsequently all the children we taught over thirty years! I recorded the song on an album in 1980 and re-recorded it in 2008. You can hear my version here:
    So a big thank you for bringing the song to my attention in the first place, and keeping it there with such remarkable and lovely pictures.

  2. Thank you for your lovely comment Ken. I will check out your version of the song.
