The Hospital Hoppities by Charlotte Hartley-Jones

For some families, hospital is a place where they spend a great deal of time. The Hospital Hoppities is a story which aims to make those families feel ‘seen’ in children’s literature, and which empowers its main character with a helping role rather than a dependent one. This book was launched with the help of generous supporters on Kickstarter.

Below, Anjalee Burrows, illustrator of The Hospital Hoppities, shows how her illustrations evolved.

For each copy of The Hospital Hoppities bought directly from us, we’ll donate £1.00 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, which helps families stay close to their children in hospital by providing free ‘home away from home’ accommodation.

Thank you to DMJ Imagery for making the wonderful videos for The Hospital Hoppities!
