"wonderfully appealing... this is a perfect 'winding-down' story"
"A baby bear - and a mummy bear!"
"It’s night time and the bear’s not going to sleep..."
"He’s lying like a bird. Him got his arms out - like a little bird!"
'My children adore this book, and I do too. It's so beautiful. A must have for everyone.'

I Love You to the Moon and Back
By Amelia Hepworth
Illustrated by Tim Warnes
Little Tiger Press 2015
A board book celebrating the love between a parent and child – in this case a big bear and its cub. All together now – ahhhhh!
I was encouraged by the publisher to make my artwork a little looser than normal for this, so there’s plenty of swishy watercolour brushstrokes going on, which is always satisfying to do. With nighttime scenes throughout, it has a quiet, hushed feel to it – perfect for bedtimes! My favourite image, which was something of a challenge, is of the two bears lying back in the grass as the aurora borealis plays out above them. I’d like to experience that someday…
