Keren Ludlow & Willy Smax

BIG PIG’S HAT
“A British husband and wife team set their witty first book in the American West.” “Smax’s succinct text is humorously laconic.” “A welcome debut.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Ludlow’s colourful art which has the appearance of woodcuts and a folksy alliteration of names and rough hewn grammar form an integrated whole.” (Booklist)

“Ludlow’s smart cartoon style is a welcome antidote to the pastel prettiness found in many current picture books.” (The Independent)

BIG PIG GETS MAD
“As a huge fan of last year’s Big Pig’s Hat I can’t recommend this follow up highly enough. Great to read aloud with big bold artwork – a really modern picture story book. Ten out of ten."  (Publishing News)

"These wonderfully brash and vigorous lino cuts tell a riotous story of injustice in the community." (Joanna Carey, The Guardian)

BENNY THE BREAKDOWN TRUCK
“Stylish, witty illustrations, five engaging stories." (Joanna Carey, The Guardian)

“The top ten from my ten thousand. Charming.” (Lynne Gregory, Daily Mail)

JACK TRACTOR

“Excellent value in this jolly, rather Fifties-style collection. Brightly coloured illustrations of the vehicles weave in and out of the text following their antics. Good for reading aloud." (The Independent on Sunday)
