About the Author
Tim Warnes and Jane Chapman live in rural southwest England and share a studio at home with views of open countryside. Mommy Mine is their first collaborative book project since their marriage ten years ago. Tim says, "It was fun playing with words and finding combinations to bounce off each other. Hopefully we've come up with something that's fun to read out loud." Jane, the best-selling illustrator of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson, enjoyed painting a few of the more obscure animals as well as old children's-book favorites.
Jane Chapman is the best-selling illustrator of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson, as well as Mommy Mine by Tim Warnes, her husband. Jane and Tim live in rural southwest England with their son, Noah, and share a studio at home with views of the open countryside.

Daddy Hug takes your kids through a journey of the animal kingdom's diverse types of Dads. Simple adjectives and words introduce all types of Daddies and roll into the next animal adjective with the flow of a song. Probably best for kids under 4, but definitely not your average picture book, Daddies and their kids abound from page to page as they exemplify the adjectives used to describe them, whether it be the SCRUFFY daddy warthog strutting his muddy self with his young in tow, the SLIMY daddy snake coiling around his wiggling hatchlings, or the FLUFFY ostrich guarding his playing chicks.
Tim Warnes' book takes a rhythmic journey of dads and their families doing what they do best in the wild, like splashing Ducks or chirping Otters. More importantly, it does this in a nurturing light culminating with what dads love to do best - giving big daddy hugs. Not to be a spoiler, but the last page is total gathering of all of nature's dads, all hugging and cuddling their little ones.
Beyond the playful use of words, the book is a great expression of illustration by Jane Chapman (who also illustrated Bear Snores On). The art is soft, welcoming, colorful and beautifully rendered. Overall, Daddy Hug is a jungle bundle of fun... for reading to your little one. Review by Ryan LaLonde at Book Dads.
