Chloe and Mick Inkpen to publish new series

4th March 2010

A new picture book series from father and daughter team Chloe and Mick Inkpen has been acquired by Macmillan Children's Books.

Mick Inkpen is responsible for creating children's favourites such as Wibbly Pig's Silly Big Bear, Kipper's Toybox and The Blue Balloon. The new series will be called Zoe And Beans.

He revealed that the three Zoe And Beans books he wrote with his daughter were well received when shown to Macmillan, who immediately asked them to craft a fourth title.

The books follow the story of Zoe and her devoted dog Beans, with the first instalment - Where is Binky Boo? - to be released in January 2011. The Magic Hoop, Zoe's Christmas Present and Pants on the Moon are to follow over the next year.

Suzanne Carnell, Macmillan Children's Books' publishing director for illustrated publishing, commented: 'I know that the adorable Zoe and Beans will win the hearts of all who meet them – just as they won ours from the very first. Fresh, funny and full of energy, the adventures of Zoe and Beans are quite irresistible.'

Mick Inkpen previously won the Children's Book Award for Threadbear and the British Book Award for the best illustrated book with Lullabyhullaballoo.
