Jefferson Bear and Figgy Twosocks to Bulgaria

  • Date Published: 1st December 2021

I’ve never had a Bulgarian edition of any of my books, but now there is to be a Bulgarian omnibus of all 3 stories about Jefferson Bear and Figgy Twosocks – What Are Friends For?, What Will I Do Without You? and Will You Forgive Me? Avuncular Jefferson and his little fox friend, Figgy, explore aspects of friendship, absence and lies in these gentle tales,  beautifully illustrated by Penny Dann and first published pre 2000. They had a recent revival in the US and Turkey and I’m still hopeful that there will be a new UK edition. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to learning how Bulgarian children respond to the stories.
