Tomatoes of Delight

We took part in the annual Writeaway conference last Friday. This years theme was celebrating ‘all that’s delightful‘ in children’s books. With a subject like that we could have been there for weeks, so it was a packed programme, with plenty of wise words from lots of fascinating speakers.

After talking Monster Tomatoes, Karen turned one of the guests (the lovely Sara Stanley), into a very speedy runner bean, here she is – thank you Sara!

Hay is for Horses!

It’s almost time for the Hay Literary Festival and we’re lucky enough to be taking part in two events on Saturday June 5th.

We’ll be reading ‘Hold on Tight, Stripy Horse!’ and ‘Oh No, Monster Tomato!’ and there’ll be lots of drawing and singing too! The first event starts at 1pm, the second at 4pm. We’ll be signing copies of our books afterwards, so do come along- we’d love to see you!

Both events are now sold out- thanks to all those who booked tickets. See you on the 5th!

Bag your own Stripy Horse!

Fans of the Stripy Horse books can now get their hands on a range of limited edition canvas bags printed with their favourite character!

Each bag comes in two sizes: small totes for little ones and large shoppers for adults.

For budding artists, there’s also a design your own bag set inspired by our November workshops in Italy.

The tote bags were designed specially for Coccinelle by Karen, and sales aid the Italian charity Magica Cleme who provide entertainment and fun days out for the families of children with cancer.

You can buy online from Coccinelle here, or at the Coccinelle shop on Kings Road in London.
