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.

A lovely balance of plot, contemporary interest, humour and sweetness. [...] I will be wholeheartedly recommending this little series as it develops to young readers - and their grownups.

Reader Reviews

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.

I enjoyed the story in many ways but I absolutely loved the illustrations because they put a smile on my face. If there is another book about the Twitches I would be desperate to read it!

What a great book, it’s perfect for my little boy. It’s nice to have a book that we can read over a few nights that’s suitable for his age. The story is really nice and the illustrations are great. We really enjoyed this one.
