A spoof beekeeping manual for bears from debut author Pip Cornell and rising star Alex G Griffiths.


Pip Cornell studied Graphic Design at Preston Polytechnic, graduated with an MA in Narrative Illustration from Brighton University and in her publishing life she’s been submerged in stories for over twenty years; working as a picture-book Art Director for some of London’s best-loved children’s publishers. Pip lives in Buckinghamshire, UK.

Alex G. Griffiths lived in Oslo, Norway until the age of 5, when his family moved to Buckinghamshire. He studied Graphic Design at Coventry University, and he is a self-proclaimed drawing addict with a love for scuba diving and snowboarding. The Bug Collector is his first picture book as both author and illustrator. Alex now lives in Canada with his wife Anna, who is a primary school teacher.


Attractive, colourful artwork depicting Bear’s mishaps is full of witty detail and provides an alternative visual narrative which contrasts with the text. The comical characters are full of personality.
