Sophy Henn loves colour and storytelling. Join this warm, engaging and funny author as she shares her Pom Pom series with very young readers. When Pom Pom Gets the Grumps, he wakes up in a BAD mood one morning, nothing is right. And then things go from bad to worse. A fresh and funny new take on tantrums, that will strike a chord with parents and young children alike.

Where Bear? is an exquisitely illustrated picture book which tells a deceptively simple story about a little boy and his bear and finding a place called home. Told with humour and warmth, this story will capture your heart.

Sophy Henn lives and works in Sussex, England. She studied Fashion at Central Saint Martins, accidentally had a London-based career as an Art Director in advertising, then completed an MA at University of Brighton in Illustration. Now she writes and illustrates children's books in her studio, with a large cup of tea by her side, and can't quite believe her luck. Where Bear? her first book, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize in 2015. She is also the World Book Day Illustrator for 2015 and 2016.
