Jolly Jake – Who is he?
Jolly Jake is the creation of Eleanor Bird, a Primary School Teacher working and Living in Nottingham, UK
Ele, as she is known, is a part time teacher and full time mother of four (some say five) children.
It was while Ele was feeding the last two of these babies that she started to write, way back in 2006 – and Jake and his Journeys were born!
She completed the entire story arc of seven stories in early 2012. Whilst still writing the series Ele read a few of the Journeys to her class. They were, without a shadow of a doubt, an instant hit. To this day children still come up to her and earnestly inform her that they loved Jolly Jake Journeys.
23 Oct 2013 – Alex has just sent through a colour verison of Jake on Facebook. He is also appearing on her own site too :O)
29 Oct 2013 – Alex has finished the cover work art and the ebook will hopefully be going on sale on Amazon Kindle during the first week of November 2013!!!
I love this picture – many, many thanks to Alex.
