You don’t need to be able to paint,
to paint a picture in your head.

Tessa is the first to say she sees the picture in her head, and from the moment she created Chloe, Tessa knew how she wanted her to look. From the length of her lashes to the curl in her neck, she knew who Chloe was and, with the help of an illustrator, Tessa painted the pictures that have bought her to life.

Chloe has been a passion in Tessa’s life, along with all the characters she writes about in the book and this shows through her work, through the attention to detail given to each personality. Each of Chloe’s friends has a part to play in the story – from the Owl with the plans and the Zebra with his books, to the Monkey making tea.

Everybody is important.

Chloe the curly necked giraffe is just one in a series of books,
all of the characters appear alongside Chloe,
in adventure after adventure.

Other titles soon to be available.
