You might not recognise Catherine Rayner‘s name, but you’ll almost certainly have encountered her children’s books – Augustus and his Smile, Solomon Crocodile and Harris Finds his Feet were all favourites of ours. Now she’s brought her beautiful animal illustrations to a collection of babywear with three woodland characters – Olive Owl, Molly Hare and Dexter Fox – plus a story print, featuring on babygros, tops, joggers, dribble cloths, blankets and bibs. Designed to encourage reading to babies from birth, each item comes with a tiny story booklet featuring the trio of forest friends and 10% of profits from all purchases will be donated to children’s book charity Read for Good.
Prices range from £8.50 to £26.50 and, as a special launch offer, all orders over £50 will receive a free giclee print of Olive, Molly and Dexter. Look no further for a gorgeous gift for a new arrival – everything comes wrapped in pretty tissue and can be sent direct with a handwritten card so you can avoid the post office queue.
