Released this month – in time for Christmas – Hannah the Spanner and the Polar Bear follows the adventures of Hannah and her friends as they cope with grumpy parents, sick reindeers, and some strange goings-on in the back garden. This leads to an emergency visit to the Professor and befriending a lost polar bear in an attempt to help a big chubby man in a red suit save Christmas.

The books were all originally written as bedtime stories for Stuart Simmonds’ eldest daughter Hannah, and Stuart promised one day he’d find a publisher for them. That happened earlier this year and the books have been such a huge success that Stuart has been inundated with bookings from schools asking him to visit to read the books and run workshops encouraging children to read, that the next two books in the series are now being published.

The previous books in the series are:

Hannah The Spanner and the Dancing Bear
Hannah The Spanner and the Robot
Hannah The Spanner and the Circus
Hannah The Spanner and the Trip to the Moon
Hannah The Spanner and the Diamond Robbery
Hannah The Spanner and the Racing Car

The entire Hannah the Spanner series has been written with bedtime reading in mind; the books are short fun stories, about Hannah on her incredible adventures, which can be enjoyed time and time again.

Stuart comments; “So many parents tell me they wish they could read to their kinds before bedtime more often, and I really hope these books will help them do so. Reading to Hannah and Lucy every night was one of my favourite parts of their childhood, and something that both of them remember and often talk about. I know children love to hear their favourite stories over and over again, so I have done my best to ensure the books are entertaining for the parents, as well as the kids.

The Hannah the Spanner books are aimed primarily at four to nine-year olds and are chock-full of colourful imagery to keep little ones entertained, whilst the engaging, funny stories resonate with older kids – and even keep the adults amused.

The books are in full colour and illustrated by Bill Greenhead, who previously worked on Charlie Smith Super Kid (Emma Lynch) and Animal Avengers (Malorie Blackman).

Stuart Simmonds is an accomplished cricketer and sports coach, he now runs a property business from his home in East Grinstead, Sussex. Prior to writing the Hannah the Spanner series, he wrote an autobiography on a life in cricket, titled ‘Watching With My Heroes’, which was widely sold through all major retailers.

The Hannah the Spanner series is available from Waterstones and all good bookshops, Amazon and direct from the Hannah the Spanner website: www.hannahthespanner.com.
