Bear Says Thanks

22nd August 2012 by Jane Chapman

Bear Says Thanks is released this Autumn (in time for Thanksgiving), when weʼll also be celebrating TEN YEARS since the first publication of Bear Snores On. Hooray! You can find out more over on our Facebook page.

Please have a look at Iʼm Not Sleepy! too. We all know little owls who donʼt want to go to bed. I wrote this story in praise of Grandmas and their seemingly endless patience….not a bit like me at bedtime – just ask my boys!

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:
