Here’s a link to the recent wonderful BBC4 documentary about the old Ladybird books and my Grandfather, the mind behind them, who I talk about in a special section in this website ‘It Runs In the Family’.

Also featuring is my Mum, Jenny Pearce & her sister Caroline Alexander!

Hogbert’s Spring is Here!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hogbert’s Spring has just been published by Parragon USA.

It’s another of my very own creations about a little creature discovering Spring for the first time.

Spring is on it’s way… But what is Spring? wonders Hogbert. Is it a caterpillar? Is it a nest of eggs? Is it a strange fluffy cloud that says ‘Baa’? As the garden’s creatures grow and change, and the wild flowers and leaves unfold, slowly, slowly, the secret of spring is revealed!

See in my books section for more.
