It's a stormy night outside the Ark. Little Eber is too frightened to go to sleep so he climbs into Grandpa Noah and Grandma Nora's cosy bed. But why is Eber's hair so tickly, and his toenails so scratchy, and his nose so snuffly, and why does he take up so much room?
Lis Coplestone finds delight in words and images and this led her to a degree in Art History and to work in a community arts centre, where she aspires to share this enthusiasm with others. She also invites a wider community to join in the games created between text and pictures with her fun stories for children, lyrically told. Jim Coplestone studied Graphic Illustration at Exeter College of Art and completed an MA in Theatre Design. His rapport with children has led him to work as a primary school teacher, arts workshop leader and home-tutor and this is apparent in his lively ink pictures. Jim and Lis are a husband and wife team and have previously collaborated on Sunshine and Storm, and Moonlight and Shadow (Ragged Bears).
