A few weeks ago, I had a lovely chat with Tessa Yates. She is a local author and illustrator based in Bath. She is the founder of the Happy Book Company and has published some beautiful books.

In this video, we talk about her books, Squirrel and The Three Bears and The Girl who Walked to Moon. But we also discuss her creative process, who inspires her and her motivation behind starting the Happy Book Company.


Below, I have included the covers of her books, which are mentioned in the Q&A.

The Girl who Walked to the Moon by Tessa Yates

Also, I included The Girl who Walked to the Moon on my blog a few months ago. It is a wonderful book for opening up conversations about resilience with children. But equally touches upon other themes such as bereavement and loss.
