Introducing “Hippity Hop and Friends"

Studio 61 owner, Karina Goodman, together with her daughter Katie, has had a children’s book published. Like many of us when we are growing up our families pass down stories that they tell us at bedtime and we then pass these down to our own children but that is as far as we go. Karina has taken it further and to celebrate her mum's 80th she wrote a book with all the characters in and has created a whole series of products to accompany it making it a beautiful range that other families can collect and read to their children and grandchildren. 

“Hippity Hop and Friends was such an important part of my childhood and my own children’s childhood, that as a special gift for my mum’s 80th birthday, my daughter and I have captured her delightful stories in words and paintings,” says Karina. “Plus, and this is even more exciting news..... there will be an exclusive range of Hippity Hop and Friends ceramics, fine art prints, cards and collectables with a family of potters creating figurines of the book characters."

 “My mum’s stories will now be read by children all around the world as my book will be in UK libraries including London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Northern Ireland and even some going overseas, including New Zealand plus many book shops. The book will also be launched in galleries across the UK. It has been months in the making with much help from my daughter & co-author in London and Thumbnail Media, who are interested in my next book. I am working on a follow up Hippity Hop plus another children's book called The Great Peak District Train Robbery.”

The book,mugs and metal prints can be bought online with Free p&p in UK. Here's the link
