Happy #ReadABookDay!

Here at Brown Bag, we LOVE books! In fact, did you know that quite a lot of the productions we've worked on started out their life as a book?

That's right! Take a look:

Henry Hugglemonster

The roarsome Henry Hugglemonster originated from the 'I'm a Happy Hugglewug' picture book from author and illustrator Niamh Sharkey.


The Octonauts first made their appearance in 'The Octonauts: And the Only Lonely Monster', a beautiful picture book from Meomi duo, Vicki Wong and Michael Murphy.

Peter Rabbit

The mischievous Peter Rabbit was, of course, based on the iconic 'Peter Rabbit' series written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter.


The lovable Bing and Flop first made their debut in 'The Bing Bunny' book series by Ted Dewan.

The Stinky & Dirty Show

The Stinky & Dirty Show is based on the hilarious 'I Stink!' book series by Jim and Kate McMullan.


The fangtastic Vampirina was inspired by Disney Publishing's popular children’s book series 'Vampirina Ballerina' from author Anne Marie Pace and illustrator LeUyen Pham.


Olivia was based on the award-winning, best-selling books written and illustrated by Ian Falconer.

Guess How Much I love You

Our preschool series 'Guess How Much I Love YouThe Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare' is the first adaptation of the much loved bestselling picture book from Sam McBratney and illustrated by Anita Jeram, which has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide.
