Hayley Scott

Hayley has always loved stories. She grew up near Watership Down, and one of her favourite things to do was visit the big hill to watch the rabbits hopping in and out of their burrows. She’s always loved really small things too. When she was little she used to make tiny furniture for fairy houses, setting them out in scooped out hollows in her back garden. To this day she’s sure the fairies used them... Hayley lives in Norfolk. Teacup House is her debut series for young readers.

“meet the twitches”
I hope Hayley Scott will write a lot more twitches books, and SOON! I brought this book home from the library, and read a chapter or two, and my granddaughter started reading it herself, and wants more. It's the first time she's been motivated to read on by herself. I love the illustrations, too, and the idea of the little rabbit family. We've read The Twitches Bake a Cake, and are looking forward to Meet a Puppy. I just wish there were a lot more titles. Thank you so much!
“Meet the Twitches”
We are currently reading this book for the second time in a forthnight! My five year old daughter loved getting to know Gabriel, Bo, Silver and Fig Twitch, a family of Rabbits owned by Stevie. This is a lovely gentle story about Stevie, a young girl who moves from her apartment in the city to her new home in the country. As the story unfolds, the reader discovers that the toy rabbits are hiding a secret from Stevie...they come alive when she is not looking. I loved how the story is something that children can relate to. We are already looking forward to getting our paws on another book from the "Teacup House" series.
