BIO: Jackie Morris is the author and illustrator of many books that masquerade as children’s books, because they contain pictures. She lives in a small house by the sea that is held together with the webs of spiders because she is more interested in painting and writing than in housework, though she does like to make bread. She shares the house with numerous dogs and cats and children that come and go ( usually her own).

  3. I wasn’t going to sell this little one. Sometimes you feel like keeping a creature from a book. But this seemed like her moment to do some good out there in the world instead of sitting quiet in a draw.

  4. £40 from me. Lovely.

  5. I painted a small black and white hare on teh title page too so it is a very unique signature.

    I will be outbid for sure but Jackie, I know she will have a good home where she will be well loved. Hares always get that 🙂

  8. She’s got tiny specks of glitter in her pale gold fur. And I will throw in a set of the postcards from hare too, signed or unsigned, whatever people prefer.

  18. Ok you lot, I think you should take a look at lot no: 425. Because if you bid enough I will make you soup, take you for a walk and do a small painting while you watch and entertain me, that you can take home.

  19. Nice try though Mr Doyle!

    There’s already a £400 bid in, Dorothy

  23. I have already bid £400, Dorothy Hallam!! I don’t want to lose that special hare on a technicality. What happens in this situation, Jackie?

  24. Can someone bear to make their bid £401?
    Otherwise, if we have no more bids by 8pm then I think the first £400 bid gets it.

  25. However, I suspect there will be a lot of activity on this item leading up to 8pm….

  26. I’m a bit scared of 7.55 pm. Not sure your website will be able to cope! Oh, and Sarah, as yours is the first bid then if no one goes higher it will be yours. Have emailed Dorothy so don’t worry.
