Bold Beasts

Bold Beasts is a publisher of illustrated children’s story books written by retired school teacher Rachel Braddock and illustrated by artist Joy Rutherford.

All the stories have animals with human traits as their central character and all use rhyme and alliteration which makes reading them aloud as much fun as listening to them. To give each character a look to suit their personality, Rachel teamed up with her old college friend, Joy Rutherford, who had recently completed a masters degree in children’s book illustration.

Bold Beasts also make a range of accessories to accompany their books, including mugs, greetings cards, posters and prints signed and numbered by the illustrator.
