Graffeg signs a contract with award-winning children's poet James Carter for a new three-book series
Watch Them Grow by James Carter, publishing June 2024, is the first in a three-book series and will look at different lifecycles in nature. This will be followed by Way to Go which explores different migrations, and lastly Who Are We? which is a look into animal diversity.
Written in rhyming verse with illustrations by James Munro, these short picture book come poetry collections will both entertain and educate children between the ages of 3-7.
James Carter says, 'It's wonderful to be working with the highly creative team at Graffeg on the World of Wild series. Moreover, their choice of illustrator for the books – the fantastic James Munro – is inspired. He brings so much vitality and humour to our books!'
Matthew Howard, Publishing Director of Graffeg, adds, 'I'm delighted that we've agreed terms with James and will be publishing this excellent series of books. James is an experienced author whose enthusiasm for his subject never wanes - his infectious energy runs through every word making the reading experience both informative and highly entertaining. With James, poetry plus the natural world definitely equals fun, so we're thrilled that he's brought his latest series of books to Graffeg.'
Watch them Grow publishes June 2024.
