Hands off my Honey! is here!

28th March 2013 by Jane Chapman

This is a collaboration between Tim and me, except that Tim had absolutely nothing to do with the writing, and I had absolutely nothing to do with the pictures! It’s nice to see both of our names on the cover of a book.

I wrote this story because my brother and I used to love playing sneaky games when we were little, as do my boys and their mates. I think that’s how they get so filthy – they’re forever pretending to be commandos.

And there’s a new story about Lazy Ladybird – except she’s not so lazy any more! You can see more of Look Out, Ladybird! on the Jack Tickle page

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:
