“A combination of colourful, quirky characters, bold illustrations and addictive, sing-along rhyming verse.”

At Maverick, some of our characters are too big for just one book and the biggest and boldest characters of all are, of course, the bizarre citizens of Hamilton Shady. Julie Fulton‘s Ever So series, featuring some of Hamilton Shady’s slightly flawed characters, has become an everlasting favourite. So with the fifth book due for release, we decided to give the whole series a bit of a lift, with brand new covers and new titles. So far everyone loves Ever So’s new look and they have welcomed new comer, Bossy Jonathan Fossy, with open arms!

Pam, who writes for the Lancashire Evening Post, has written a brilliant review for the whole series.

“This is a delightful little cautionary tale about the value of unusual talents, and listening to what other people have to say. Julie Fulton’s inventive, flowing and addictive verse is transformed into action through Elina Ellis’s enchanting and larger-than-life illustrations.”

“Julie Fulton’s entertaining sing-song rhyme and Jona Jung’s colourful and expressive illustrations bring to life a hilariously quirky heroine and funny, captivating story.”

“ Jona Jung’s outsize, cartoon-like illustrations are a feast for the eyes and the perfect match for Julie Fulton’s tasty, tantalising rhymes. A deliciously funny story with a larger-than-life message…

A combination of colourful, quirky characters, bold illustrations and addictive, sing-along rhyming verse make these appealing stories, set in the funny, fictional town of Hamilton Shady, a favourite with younger children.”
