I love picture books. And I don’t think you ever grow out of them; that magical meshing of unforgettable imagery and enchanted text.
Not only do picture books excite, inspire and comfort us, they’re also a catapult for kids into the world of independent reading. Many children will memorise the text of their favourite picture book long before they begin to read it. I’m thrilled to be part of this exciting genre and can’t wait to see Do Not Wash This Bear on the shelves.
