H gs Back Books - a nose for a good book ...

Autumn and winter 2012


A nose for a good book ... Welcome to Hogs Back Books and to our autumn and winter 2012 brochure. We have selected a range of books which form the perfect gift for any time of year, but particularly at Christmas. Take a look at The King Who Wanted More and the icy backdrop captured by Romanian born artist Madalina Dina. If you are already looking forward to spring then choose The Teeny-Weeny Walking Stick by Karen Hodgson or Three Silly Chickens by Tanya Fenton.

Hogs Back Boooks is a new and a small independent publisher of children’s picture books. Our name is taken from the Hogs Back - a ridge of chalk which runs between Guildford and Farnham in Surrey. “Hogs Back” is thought to be derived from the ancient word “og” meaning “giant”. However, rather than choosing a giant to represent us, we’ve adopted a pig’s snout as our logo and the phrase “a nose for a good book”. We try to select only the very best stories and ideas and to match these with fresh and original illustrations to create books which inform and entertain young children. So next time you are buying a book - sniff out Hogs Back Books! www.hogsbackbooks.com


The King Who Wanted More

The King Who Wanted More is a new and original Christmas gift book. Richly illustrated with each page a work of art, this traditional-style tale is destined to become a classic. It tells the story of a greedy King who is outwitted by a shepherd and learns an important lesson in the process.
