Tortoise does not like winter and as such is adamant about going to sleep. Unfortunately, he’s not too adept at picking his hibernation locations because he keeps picking spots next to his friends who are enjoying their winter activities. With each thwarted attempt at sleep, he grows grumpier and grumpier, but then something happens that changes his mind about the snow and cold. Maybe winter isn’t so bad after all.

This funny story is a great one to teach kids that even if they think they don’t like something or they haven’t in the past, it might be worth trying out again—they just might like it! :) The illustrations are so beautiful, too!

Who Wrote A Loud Winter's Nap

author & illustrator
Katy Hudson

Katy was raised in Middlesbrough and started her Illustration career as a small child drawing on freshly emulsioned walls around the house! Her parents quickly dissuaded this medium and encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead.

The idea stuck (the pencil was updated to an ink pot and pen in some cases) and after some lovely time at Art College and a degree in Illustration Katy is now a freelance Illustrator based in London.

Her debut author/illustrated picture book “Bear and Duck” was published by Harper Collins in June 2015, her second “Too Many Carrots” was published by Capstone in February 2016. She is currently working on her third and fourth picture books and is very excited about that!
