Debbie Harter Barefoot Books

Debbie Harter, illustrator of Barefoot Books classics such as The Animal Boogie and the Bear series, talks about her art, her family and her love of storytelling! Debbie is a much-loved Barefoot artist who lives in Falmouth, England.


We have some very exciting news to share! Our dear Bear, beloved by children all over the world, has been invited to participate in a very special symphony orchestra led by some of the finest musicians in the land. The Canton Symphony Orchestra in Canton, Ohio, will be bringing Bear to life through music for young people at their annual SymphonyLand series, which runs January 11 through April 19.


Fans of our Barefoot bear will know that he is now officially ten years old. His latest adventure, Bear’s Birthday, came into the world in June. He had to wait a little while, though, for his birthday to be properly celebrated. Here he is at the Bath Festival of Children’s Literature, where 22 small children came along with their very own bears to help him celebrate.
