About the Illustrator
Daniel Howarth started drawing from a very early age and went on to study Art at college and then university. He graduated with a degree in Illustration in 1994 and started creating his own range of greetings cards with his wife and fellow children's author, Heidi Howarth, whom he met at university. Daniel works from his studio in Exeter and enjoys the wealth of inspiration and imagination that comes from living deep in the Devon countryside with his wife and two children.
This is the perfect vehicle for naturally addressing any issues, concerns or worries that young children may have about starting school. Little hedgehog is about to start 'big school' but he is really worried that he is not quite big enough. This is a story about friendship and how we can all get by a bit better with a little help from our friends. Brilliant, bright, bold illustrations correlate to the text making it easier for emergent readers to find the words they need and to encourage prediction skills." Early Years
