Presenting Jan Wallis - Author of Colin Cone

Jan spent her working career bringing children into the world as a midwife and then as a senior midwife, tutor and writer.

Her own children - now grown up - enjoyed the delights of road cones as the repair works on UK motorways increased exponentially ....indeed the quantity and arrangement of road cones became a national radio soap opera!

Using her many talents Jan has turned the cones into a entertaining series of family stories with charming personalities and combined it with a gentle educational tool of observation and counting questions....

The simple but delightful drawings succeed in bringing real warmth and life to the guardians of road holes and cones are with us forever

Join Colin and his family as they protect the holes in the roads and enjoy their adventures.
