Tim Warnes: Meet Mole and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing

Join local award-winning author and illustrator of DANGEROUS! and WARNING! This Book May Contain Rabbits Tim Warnes, as he brings his lovable characters Mole and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing to life. Enjoy stories, live drawing and plenty of labelling (because that’s Mole’s absolute top thing to do!).

Tim Warnes has been creating children’s picture books for over 20 years, and is married to fellow author-illustrator Jane Chapman. He has worked on more than 80 books, including the family favourites I Don’t Want To Go To Bed!, NO!, and The Great Cheese Robbery. In 2015 DANGEROUS! was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. When he’s not creating picture books, Tim likes to play clawhammer banjo, go birding, sculpt and read comic strips. He lives out in the sticks in Dorset.

DANGEROUS! Is a story about acceptance and the importance of getting to know people before we make judgements about them. Children will be able to empathise with both Mole for getting cross and the Lumpy-Bumpy Thing who’s reduced to tears. Parents will be entertained by Tim’s engaging style and we guarantee an hour of warmth and fun.

For children aged 5-8 years
