Welcome to the "Pebbles and Friends" Website!

"Pebbles and Friends" is a self-published children's book created by Robert Clarke and Hannah Vandridge. Every stage in its development has been undertaken entirely by us, from its initial conception to this website - even the characters are based on our real-life pets.

Robert writes the "Pebbles and Friends" stories and also finishes off the illustrations on his computer by adding colour and arranging them in layers to create whole scenes. When Robert isn't busy creating new stories, he works for the University of Cambridge.


Hannah draws the illustrations for the "Pebbles and Friends" books and cards. She also helps Robert edit the stories. Hannah works with children and especially enjoys sharing "Pebbles and Friends" with them. She loves drawing new images of Pebbles, Minnie and Harry to go with Robert's stories.
