Book Week!


Chris and I had such a great time sharing Inspector Brunswick and How to Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear with children from Southwell and Hukanui schools. Each reading was followed by an illustration exercise and there were some lovely hedgehog drawings and Admirals with delightful eyebrows. Thanks to both schools for having us along for book week!



I’ve been having fun trying new materials and experimenting a lot lately. So nice to get off the computer and work more with my hands. Coloured pencils and pastels may be my new favourite!


How To Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear is an ACE Awards Finalist


Excited to see that How To Help a Hedgehog and Protect a Polar Bear is one of three finalists in the Best Children’s Publication category of the ACE Awards. Delighted to be in such great company and so glad this book is resonating with so many parents and children! Congratulations to all finalists and especially author Jess French and our awesome team at Nosy Crow.
