  • 5 stars across 47 books
    Jan Fearnley is the award-winning author-illustrator of Mr Wolf's Pancakes, Harry and the Jaggedy Daggers and Milo Armadillo among many others.
    Jan lived in London for many years and now lives in the French countryside with her writer husband, Paul, two cheeky donkeys, five irrepressible rescued goats, who are known as 'The Horn Section,' two cheese-obsessed Limousin hens, five naughty cats - and any other waif and stray who appears at the kitchen door. Edgar and the Sausage Inspector is Jan's first picture book with Nosy Crow. The real Edgar sleeps on a cushion on Jan's drawing table, and he thinks it's only right that Nosy Crow are making a story about him . . .
