Graffeg is to republish the popular Fletcher picture book series by Julia Rawlinson and Tiphanie Beeke, previously published in the UK as Ferdie the Fox by Gullane Children’s Books. World rights, excluding North America, have been secured from The Catchpole Agency.
Combining emotive, lyrical storytelling with an engagement with nature, the adventures of Fletcher coincide with the characteristics of the four seasons, inspired directly by author Julia Rawlinson’s experiences with her own children and their inquisitiveness about the natural world. The books have been widely used in educational settings, such as schools, libraries, parks and museums, as a springboard for exploring language, illustration, storytelling, friendship and nature, as well as on nature walks and story walks. Illustrations by Tiphanie Beeke are wonderfully engaging and saturated with the colours of each season.
