Tatyana Feeney grew up in North Carolina, where she spent much of her childhood reading and drawing. This developed into a love of art and particularly illustrations in children's books, so she gave up her abition to be a fire girl and studied Art History and Illustration. Tatyana now lives in Trim with her husband and two children. She has illustrated several Panda books with The O'Brien Press and is also the author and illustrator of Small Bunny's Blue Blanket, Little Owl's Orange Scarf, Little Frog's Tadpole Trouble and Small Elephant's Bathtime.
One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | October 2017 Book of the Month Beautifully illustrated throughout, this stunning book by Tatyana Feeney is an absolute delight to read. Mr Wolf just loves his socks. He feels particularly good when wearing them and so is rather concerned when he suddenly notices a small hole appear in one. He tries to ignore it but gradually it gets bigger and bigger. He attempts to fix the hole using plasters, glue and sticky tape but nothing seems to work and so he decides to search for the answer in a book. He soon discovers how he can make his very own socks, socks of different lengths and colours. Whilst his nose is buried in a book he stumbles across the end of a length of wool which is exactly what he needs to make his socks! He then embarks on a trip around Ireland following the string of wool in pursuit of its source. As his adventure continues he begins to imagine all the things he can knit, until finally Mr Wolf discovers where the wool has come from. Before long he has knitted himself a brand new pair of socks and delights in the fact that he'll never be caught out by hole again! I absolutely loved the dapper, friendly Mr Wolf and his colourful, cosy socks. Perfect to share with young book (and sock!) lovers. ~ Shelley Fallows - You can also find Shelley here.

Small Elephant loves water. Except, that is, when the water is in a bath. Mummy uses various incentives to entice him into a bath, but nothing works and Small Elephant goes into toddler meltdown before 'hiding' behind the curtain. Luckily, Mummy has one more strategy up her sleeve to get him over his sulk and into the suds. It's to use diversion tactics and laughter - and it's all down to the comedy value of Daddy in some rather fetching trunks! Told with Tatyana Feeney's trademark understated wit and highly individual artwork style, this story captures perfectly the trigger, experience, and dispersal of a toddler tantrum, with humour and a lightness of touch. Perfect for sharing with Dads!
Exciting new author Tatyana Feeney has created something very special. In just a very few words and with the simplest of illustrations, she speaks to toddlers everywhere who are inseparable from a special toy or object. Small Bunny loves Blue Blanket.

Later, when a clean and unfamiliar blanket is brought down from the washing line and put into Small Bunny's little paws, he is not happy. How will he restore Blue Blanket to just the way it was before? This time it's Small Bunny who has plans!
