Oscar and Arabella

It all started with Oscar and Arabella. Neal Layton was sitting in a cafe with his girlfriend, Sadie, on holiday in New York. He said to Sadie, let’s both draw a woolly mammoth – and so they did. Neal drew a boy mammoth and called him Oscar, and Sadie drew a girl mammoth called Arabella.

When Neal and Sadie came home, a publisher saw the pictures and thought it would be a good idea to write a book about them, and that’s how the first book came about. It was just called Oscar and Arabella – and the book told us what fun they had living at the time of cave men.
