Jill Murphy Pair

Heartwarming family favourites by a classic author. Snuggly, reassuring and just right for bedtimes. Some picture books take you on great journeys and epic adventures. But these books peek into the most familiar place of all: home. There’s no place like home – and these best-loved stories capture the routine cosiness of family life. There’s a papa who can’t get to sleep, and the chaos of getting a babysitter. In fact, the families in these books are probably a lot like yours. But there’s a big difference: one is a family of bears, and one is a family of elephants who serve up lots of jumbo laughs!

  • Classic picture books by the wonderful Jill Murphy
  • Delightfully warm and witty tales of family life
  • Jill is a talented artist and picture book creator
  • She also wrote best-loved series The Worst Witch
