Mice, Tigers and Bears – Oh My!

9th June 2016 by Jane Chapman

My latest release is Squish Squash Squeeze! Why on earth does Mouse think he’s found the perfect house? You can read how the book came about in an interview with myself and the author Tracey Corderoy over at Reading Zone.

Fans of the Karma Wilson Bear books will be pleased to hear that we have another title publishing much later this year. Take a sneak-peek here at Big Bear, Small Mouse, an introduction to opposites. I saw the proofs last week and was secretly very happy with the way it’s shaping up – if I was aged two, I’d love this book!

a bit about us

We studied illustration together at Brighton University, graduating in 1993. Since then we've got married, had a couple of kids, and collectively illustrated over 150 books.

Although we work separately on our own commissions, we constantly refer to each other for advice when we get stuck. For instance, Jane is definitely better at perspective and providing cake, whereas Tim knows how to work the scanner and type an invoice.

We share a studio in rural Dorset, UK near the Jurassic Coast, with cows, rabbits, and badgers for neighbours.

Together we are CHAPMAN AND WARNES (a bit like Batman and Robin, but with less crime fighting and no capes)!

We would love to hear from you:
