Ceri & Deri are a series of illustrated children's stories by exciting new illustrator Max Low.

Praise for the Ceri & Deri series:
'It’s fresh and fun and I love the way Max plays with shape and line and limits his palette to shades of the same colours. […] reading these books with young children will support their understanding of directions (Treasure Map), time (No Time for Clocks), counting, sharing and design. The emphasis, though, is most definitely on fun. […] Playful, engaging and full of humour, the Ceri and Deri books are fabulous picture books made for sharing. Max Low is an extremely talented illustrator and we can’t wait to see what comes next.' Family Bookworms
'The educational element makes them the perfect books for sharing in the classroom, while the stories themselves make for great read-at-home tales. Here the reader will get concepts like basic maths, telling the time, kindness and friendship. Completely enjoyable, gentle and engaging.' Mary Esther Judy, bookseller
