JUVENILE FICTION / Social Themes / Friendship


Max and Xam are the very best of friends - until they fall out over who is more popular! Determined to prove the other wrong, their exploits bring new meaning to the phrase ‘making friends’. A hilarious and delightfully far-fetched story about the meaning and value of real friendship.

Author Bio

Ariane has loved making up stories since she was little. She also loved illustrating them, preferably with markers on the wall. Now all grown-up, she lives her dream by illustrating and writing picture books for children big and small. The walls are definitely thankful for that! Ariane now lives with her three children, two cats and one husband in South London, where she comes up with new stories and occasionally paints on a wall.

Ariane has been a storyteller all her life, and her teddy bear and little brother were her first captive audience! For the last ten years she has been a traveller too, visiting countries like India, Japan, and the USA and discovering the way that new cultures open doors into new worlds.

She has recently ventured through a Psychology degree, and her latest journey took her to Anglia Ruskin University, where she completed her MA in Children's Book Illustration. For the moment, she has settled in London. She can be found there, sitting in her jungle garden, writing and illustrating exciting adventure stories.
