Our 3rd picture book, Edie's Litte White Lie - NEW out now!

'Edie's Little White Lie' -Picture book - 2020

When Edie tells Kay that “Actually, I love your singing voice,” she wasn’t expecting Kay to run off and enter a talent show. She was just trying to cheer up her best friend after Polecat Mac said how terrible her voice was (and it’s seriously not good).
Those judges can be pretty cruel, and the audiences even worse.

Will Kay blame Edie when everyone laughs at her? Can their friendship even survive?

Horace and Nim try to help out, but things look pretty grim for the well-meaning duck.

More info here. The book is available from Amazon UK, Amazon US, Quarto Knows and all good bookshops

Horace & Nim's 2nd picture book, Positive Thinking for Piglets

Positive thinking for piglets

'Positive Thinking for Piglets' -Picture book - 2019

When cool cousin Reg tells Kay that she can have anything she wants, if she wants it badly enough, Kay is not totally convinced. But she gives it a try. Sure enough, getting her heart’s desire (a freshly-baked acorn pie) proves more than a little frustrating.

A great introduction to metaphysics for the precocious four to six year old!

available from Amazon uk, Amazon USA, from Hubble & Hattie or your local bookshop.

The fruits of the forest are ripening, but the only way Polecat Mac will bake one of his delicious raspberry pies is if the friends do the picking. The friends can pick the raspberries okay, but the fruit keeps finding its way into their mouths before it reaches their baskets. Looks like they’ll never collect enough. Can Horace save the day with his secret raspberry-picking device?
