Jungle Shenanigans!

13th September 2013 by Jane Chapman

Monkey Found a Baby was recently published and I LOVE it! That monkey is so cheeky and cute! The first time I read the text to my youngest son, he almost fell off the bed for laughing. The rhyming scheme is delightful, and it’s asking to be made into a song. Any takers out there?

There’s also a new pull out puzzle book for little ones, called Who Are We? You have to guess the animal from the clues in the text, then pull out the page to see if you’re right. Even older kids seem to enjoy this as the animals are a bit more obscure than your usual cat, dog, mouse etc.

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:
