The first Deer Little Forest picture book will be debuted at BLE next week on stand J56.
Titled The Animal Moon Parade, the book has been created by Henries Award nominated illustrator Jo Rose and introduces readers to the Deer Little Forest characters as they traipse through a 'magical and musical moonlit adventure'.
Six Deer Little Forest nooks are in the pipeline, with stories spanning magic on Halloween in Mischief Night to the forest Ecosystem in Bee Happy.
Rose's designs are created using a combination of paper cutting, illustration and photography. The hand-drawn characters are placed into a 3D set, backlit and photographed, giving the illustrations a unique style.
Deer Little Forest cards have sold well in Paperchase, Selfridges, Harrods, Libertys, and John Lewis, and the brand is growing in categories including apparel and wooden postcards.
All rights for Deer Little Forest are being managed by Lisa Hryniewicz at Koko Media.
