My Humongous Hamster Goes To School
It’s not released until next April but here is a sneak peek of the cover of my next book (and you can pre-order on amazon).
SOCK MONSTER GOES LIVE!!!
Our very first childrens storybook app for IPad was unleashed this week and we’ve been getting great feedback, tweets and reviews. It’s £2.99 from the AppStore and is great for 2-5yr olds! Printed version coming soon!
Help us spread the word!!!
"Sock Monster is a quirky storybook adventure for iPad with original hand-crafted artwork by exciting new author / illustrator Lorna Freytag. The story is for wee monsters aged 2-5yrs (but we’re sure you’ll love it just as much!).
Follow Sock Monster as he GOBBLES, MUNCHES and CHOMPS all the socks in the house.
What will he do when there are none left? Help him find all the socks before he fades away forever!”
"Hospitals can be scary places" RMHCUK
Really nice little animation for Ronald McDonalds House Charity.
The press packs are ready to go! AppStore launch date imminent!! : )
The Silence Beneath the Bark
Lovely, peaceful animation short by Joanna Lurie.
"In the depths of a great forest covered in a great white mantle, curious little creatures discover how beautiful and fascinating and white snow is…"
YUM!!! Love this sweetie themed series by Emily Blincoe. Thanks to Made by Wolf for showing it on their great blog! My pregnancy fetish is liquorice so i particularly like the black collection!!
SOCK MONSTER- Sneak Peak!
We’ve just mocked up the cover for my new Sock Monster book that will be available soon to go along with our storybook app. Looking good!!! : )
At first it will be for sale via our website www.junoberry.com and published under Junoberry Press. Then hopefully we can expand to Amazon and all good bookshops!
My Humongous Hamster Goes to School
Have just handed in the final files to Piccadilly Press for the second hamster book! Yippee! Due for release next Spring!
Oz The Great and Powerful
Really loved the intro sequence for this film (created by Yu and Co). Very inspirational! Inspired by miniature paper theatres with their layered scenes.
The film itself was…..erm……disappointing to put it politely!!
2013 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal
Congratulations Levi Pinfold!!
Amazing illustrator and author! Very envious!
Liu Di- Animal Regulation Series
I came across this series a while ago and forgot to include it on my blog- so here you go!
I love images that play with scale!
Liu Di highlights the relationships “between nature and human society, between the material world and the intellect, between obedience to and violation of the laws of nature. It is only when our preconceptions are jolted that we wake up and truly see”.
My Humongous Hamster Goes to School
Just starting work on another exciting project with Piccadilly Press- the follow on book from My Humongous Hamster!!!
"My Humongous Hamster Goes to School" will be published spring next year : )
Hamsters position inspired by Liu Di’s Animal Regulation series.
Little Rebels Book Award
Wild Child is shortlisted for the Little Rebels Book Award and the winner will be announced on Saturday 11th May. From 70 books 4 were shortlisted so i’m really chuffed! Jeanne Willis will be at the event in London just incase we win! Fingers crossed. The judges comments so far are great:
Brilliant app for iphone and iPad from Italian designer Lucas Zanotto. Kids can learn the alphabet and have fun with traditional drawing (good old pen and paper) at the same time!
Kate Moore (Griffith) is an industrial designer and paper engineer. I love her monster studies that even show their anatomy!
She claims to have discovered the secret of how such large creatures can fit into small spaces (like under your bed). The monsters have the ability to flatten themselves as thin as a piece of paper and then fold themselves back into their original structure when out in the open. Terrifying and magnificent!
