Some 30 hospitals have benefitted from the donation including Alder Hey in Liverpool, Royal Alexandra in Brighton and Great Ormond Street in London among others.

The illustrated books feature the Little Suzy's Zoo character set and include Witzy the Little Duck, Witzy has a Party, Witzay and Friends and Witzy's Adventure.

"We are pleased to share our Little Suzy's Zoo characters with the children of the UK," said creator Suzy Spafford. "Witzy and his friends are looking forward to bringing smiles to their faces while they recover in hospital."

Stephanie Ackland from Blue Sky added: "We are thrilled that children's hospitals in the UK are responding positively to the books. Witzy and friends are the perfect tonic."
