I have these two little penguins to thank for launching my career in picture books (as well as my agent, editor, designer, my family…ha ha!). ‘Bob and Flo – the missing bucket’ was picked up by three different publishers during Bologna Book Fair 2013. My final choice was Oxford University Press, who offered me a two book deal and a wonderful home for my creation. These beautiful soft toys (below), made by my editor Helen Mortimer, played their part in sealing the deal!
Bob and Flo made a suitable splash during Bologna Book Fair 2014 (below) and have since been published in the US and sold all over the world.
‘Bob and Flo – hide and seek’ will be out in 2016.
