Celestine & The Hare
About the Artist
Karin Celestine lives in a small house in Monmouth, Wales. In her garden there is a shed and in that shed is another world, the world of Celestine and the Hare. It is a world where weasels are ruled by King Norty, pandas ride space hoppers and bears read stories to each other. It is a place that makes people smile and where kindness is the order of the day. All are welcome. Karin taught children about art, about chemistry, numbers, crafts and magic, but she was always drawn back to the Shed where she now brings to life creatures of all kinds using only wool, observation and the power of imagination. Karin and the creatures write stories about the huge power of kindness. These are book that everyone should read – not just children.
