Description

Join Noriko for this free, fun, after-school storytelling session!

Noriko Matsubara is a children's book author & illustrator born in Japan and Bocchi and Pocchi: A Tale of Two Socks is her first picture book. The inspiration for the story came from her childhood as she would watch her grandmother regularly darning socks and wondering what might happen to them.

The ‘Bocchi and Pocchi’ series has been published in the UK and translated into 5 languages including Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Catalonian and Vietnamese. Her new title Bocchi and Pocchi and Baby Sock will be published by Troika Books in autumn 2019.
