It all started with a doodle and a scribble...

Hello! We are Doodles & Scribbles: long-time friends but a fresh writer and illustrator duo in children's book publishing, creating lovely books for little explorers…

We met at university, where Lucy was studying poetry and Jenna was studying Fine Art.  Lucy’s always been a bookworm and loves scribbling stories; Jenna’s an artist to the core and has always doodled drawings. For years we've wanted to create a range of beautiful children’s books together, and now here we are!

Our journey began two years ago, when Lucy shared her first set of children’s poems with Jenna, and we decided to collaborate.  The seed for the stories was planted when Lucy spotted a parrot in the trees in London. Her husband wouldn't believe her, until one day she found a brilliant green feather hiding amongst the leaves…

Now, two years and lots of scribbles, doodles and cups of tea later, we have a successful first title under our belts and more in the pipeline coming soon.  We’ve read our books to hundreds of children in schools, nurseries and playgroups across the country, and we’ve been blown away by their reaction.  And hopefully in the process we’ve also inspired a few little ones to start exploring their surroundings for interesting finds.
