Bear and Bird Visit Waterstones!

Our talented Plum Jonny Lambert visited Waterstones Reigate this week, in collaboration with DK Books to promote the beautiful new picture book Bear and Bird Lend a Helping Hand

Alongside some beautiful felt figures of the titular characters made by his partner Louise, Jonny spent the morning captivating the children by doing live drawings of the charming Bear and Bird, which he then signed for his little fans to take home! He also gave out Bear and Bird activity sheets for the children to colour in, and signed copies of the book for customers to purchase.

Waterstones Reading

Jonny Lambert is an incredibly successful author and illustrator, who has worked on over 60 books in his career, including the much-loved Wide-Mouthed Frog, The Only Lonely Panda, and Where In The Wild. His unique way of drawing and collage work gives him an instantly recognised illustration style, which creates beautiful characters and spreads that bring a little bit of magic to every story.

Waterstones Felt Figures

Jonny finished the morning with a read-along story time session of Bear and Bird Lend a Helping Hand, and his classic book Animal 123 (also published by DK Books).
