Buddy’s pancakes

A beautifully illustrated story about love, families and food. A perfect book to share with little children. And pancake lovers!

Since we started buying kids books we realised how few of them show kids who look like our kids or families who looked like our family. So we decided to make our own. Some background to us: Judy Skidmore has been a graphic designer for the past 15 or so years and is branching out after having kids. Sheju John has worked in tech for 20 years, Sheju loves creating stuff and is loving this new challenge.

Inclusivity has always been an issue they have felt to be important to everyone and has become even more so since they now have a family with mixed heritage.

The Alice and Judy adventure books

Sisters Judy and Alice do everything together. After a magical journey where they meet Jack Frost, they even save the precious seasons. Join Judy and Alice for stories of bravery, kindness, sisterhood and friendship!

These charming stories are written and illustrated by Alan Skidmore. Alan lives in London with his wife Janet. He was born in Liverpool, has great Liverpudlian wit and is a wonderful storyteller. Alan wrote the Alice and Judy stories for his daughters, who are grown up now. He reads them to his grandchildren and we are now publishing them so other children can enjoy them.

Alan spent most of his career as a scenic artist. He has painted backdrops for theatre and film sets and is a great artist in his own right working in watercolours, oils and inks.
