PRESS RELEASE FOR BETHANY BULL, AUTHOR OF “BIG T AND THE HERBIVORE FRIENDS
BETHANY BULL WILL BE AT LONDON BOOK FAIR
We take a look at this emerging author, whose Children’s Books are now ﬁnding the limelight…
Like all overnight successes, Bethany Bull has worked hard to earn the plaudits that now surround her name.
With three books already on Amazon, a publisher at Wollywagon — and a fourth book about to be launched — Bethany has already given thousands of children a ﬁrst glimpse of love of stories — not just a love of reading per se. it is this capturing of imagination, that is probably the unique aspect that children love, and who buy her books in their thousands. It is probably because the stories themselves, of animals that talk, or danger, of horror — but in a way that children can handle — treat children as equal partners, and the graphics are fanciful and inspirational.
Bethany herself was born and raised in South Africa. Her family did not have television until 1976, so her imagination was her main ...source of entertainment. She had a love of animals and magical creatures and a vast country with big open spaces where she imagined they lived. She would make up stories for her siblings in the evenings.
This is the pedigree that Bethany brings to her market, and what she says about her work, displays an understanding of the minds of children that have no limits:
“They have no doubt an ant can talk. Their imaginations are free to believe.”
We interviewed Bethany at our ofﬁces, and her modest way of describing herself overlays a real passion for communicating with her market. She lives modestly in the West of Cornwall, and there is this “back to nature” understanding that resonates throughout her work.
