Alice Hemming

I write for children of all ages and have had over 50 books published in the UK and internationally, including picture books and chapter books. I have also written for websites, reading schemes and even a talking bear! Two of my books were selected for the National Library Summer Reading Challenge. As well as writing, I love visiting schools to share my work and run literacy workshops. 

I’ll be bringing my new book to the Festival – That’s MY Flower, a spring sequel to The Leaf Thief, by me and illustrator Nicola Slater.

Some exciting news: I’ve been working with the team at the Kent Wildlife Trust on a brand new picture book about bison, inspired by their Wilder Blean project! Find out more here.
