59 children’s books by the writer and illustrator

Rose Impey has been writing for children for over thirty years in which time she's had well over a hundred books published. She writes for all ages: picture books, early readers, older fiction and novels for young and pre-teens. She has made a specialty of rewriting traditional stories eg The Orchard Book of Fairy Tales. Before becoming a writer Rose was a primary school teacher and has maintained very close links with teachers and schools. She's a frequent visitor to classrooms which explains how she stays in tune with changing tastes and fashions. It also allows her the opportunity to road test her work throughout the process. Rose writes for different ages and different tastes, both for girls and boys. Much of it is light and funny but she also writes more serious thought-provoking stories. One of her other talents is the ability to read her work aloud well, which makes her much in demand for Book Weeks. She has written many highly successful series for Orchard: Animal Crackers, Titchywitch, Pirate Patch and more recently Nipper McFee. She's also the creator of the very popular Sleepover Club which was made into a major TV series. She lives in Leicestershire and has two daughters and four grandchildren, who are beginning to provide material for lots of new stories. Ian Beck is a popular illustrator of children's books and his work appears frequently in magazines and advertisements. He has designed the jackets of many adult novels including all the Penguin editions of David Lodge and the Alice Thomas Ellis books. Ian's first book for Orchard was Five Little Ducks, which was so successful that a 'Big Book' format was published. The Ugly Duckling and The Orchard Book of Fairy Tales followed and Ian also contributed illustration to The Orchard Book of Opera Stories. Ian has also illustrated The Orchard ABC and Little Angel written by Geraldine McCaughrean. Ian Beck lives in Richmond, Surrey with his wife and three children and keeps in close touch with children through frequent visits to schools and libraries.
