Meet Sue Hendra – Author of Supertato

Meet the wonderful Sue Hendra, who writes and illustrates the amazing Supertato books with her partner, Paul Linnet. I had the chance to ask her a few questions when were both working in Netley Marsh School on Empathy Day – 12th June.

We both had a great day telling stories to the children and talking about empathy and how to understand other points of view by reading books and inhabiting the characters

Pandora – now even more exclusive!

Edition now only 100

As I write, there are only 25 hours to go to fund my Pandora Picture Book Project It is so close – £86% funded – but I have to concede that it is not going to be a sell out of the original 250 copies I intended to make in this special, first edition.

More Exclusive than before!

I have reduced the quantity of the edition to 100, and therefore the availability of the edition, making it much more exclusive and collectible. You might even want two copies – one to read and one to put under the mattress in case it becomes valuable one day – You never know!

Pandora would make a brilliant gift for someone who has everything. As a cherished supporter your name will appear on the Cherished Supporter’s page in each book or why not nominate someone else… children – grandchildren – nieces and nephews – book collectors or even a school or a class in school – what a great gift to give to a primary or elementary school teacher!

Thanks so much to all those who have already backed this project – I’m so grateful for your enduring interest and support.

The campaign finishes at 6:00pm UK time, tomorrow, Thursday 28th June 2018

Learn to draw Cat and Dog – Big Cat Series

I am so thrilled to finally have copies of How to Draw Cat and Dog.

I’ve been using the Cat and Dog books in reception and nurseries for some time and I’m always amazed – sometimes almost moved to tears – by the quality of the drawing the very young children draw along with me.

I’ve wanted to make this book for a while and finally convinced Big Cat to let me do it. It’s also a phonics book, which made it hard choosing the right words to describe key words for explaining drawing, that I couldn’t use because of the language levels. For circles – I used rings.

I am so proud of how it came out. Many thanks to my editor, Catherine Coe, for helping to squeeze it all into the phonics box.

Cat and Dog teach you how to draw cat and dog in a story – yes, there is a story too! Learn also how to draw a tree so Cat has somewhere to hide when Dog starts chasing. With all that drawing, you have everything you need to write and illustrate a simple story – even key words.

What more could anyone want in a Reception/Kindergarten/Early years Foundation class?
