How To Mend a Friend

by Karl Newson and Clara Anganuzzi
Publication Date: 10/06/2021
RRP  $21.95 $21.75

A heartfelt picture book that explains empathy, told in simple words.

Some friends need a great big hug to make them feel well.
Some prefer to be alone. Some listen, others tell
the most adventurous stories of the times that went before!
Some friends may not want to talk about them anymore.

How to Mend a Friend is a heartfelt picture book which touches on empathy, loss and friendship.

At times, we all feel a little bit broken. Karl's simple text is a guide on How to Mend a Friend, whether it's a friend with a broken toy, a broken heart, a loss they can't explain or the sadness that comes when someone else eats the last cookie.

Featuring a child and an imaginary animal friend, children will find it easy to relate to the story throughout, whilst learning how they might support a friend who feels sad.

Karl Newson

Karl Newson is an award-winning children's book author. He spends his days scribbling story ideas in his notebook or searching for them in the great big world outdoors. Karl was inspired to write his first picture book when his children were small and he's been writing stories ever since...

His stories have been shortlisted for numerous children's books awards and are translated in over 20 languages around the world. He is also an illustrator of other people's stories and a writer of nonsense poetry. When he isn't writing or drawing, he dreams of castles made of books and of rocketing to the moon to watch the world go by. Karl lives in London, with his partner and a forest of pot plants.

Clara Anganuzzi

Clara would draw on every surface she could find (including some very unhappy tortoises) whilst growing up in the Seychelles. She has always had a fond love for animals and creating characters with subtle gentle humour. Using a mixture of traditional techniques, ranging from monoprinting to pencil marks, Clara enjoys creating narrative images and a sense of place in limited colour palettes. After studying BA illustration at Falmouth University, she went on to complete a MA Children's Illustration course at Anglia Ruskin, which helped her gain personal voice, inspiration and motivation.
