Sneaky Shadows uniquely showcases the limitless possibilities of shadow-casting in a book of imaginative, absurd misdirection. Its humour, pace and timing will have young audiences on their toes with anticipation, as the bizarre scenarios of author SC Manchild unfold. Sneaky Shadows is cheeky, laugh-out-loud fun that enjoys repeat reading from children (and parents!) of all ages.

SC Manchild is the CEO of an international company using a pen-name so his governing board won’t discover his penchant for funny picture books. He lives in Melbourne and his favourite part of the day is reading to his children at bedtime. Sneaky Shadows is his debut book.
