Two into one doesn't go - except with our special pre-publication double offer.

We are very excited to announce the publication of "J’allons à la chasse à l’ourse", a translation into Jèrriais of Michael Rosen’s much-loved picture book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. 

To celebrate European Day of Languages on 26th September, a copy of the book will be presented free of charge to all children starting reception class in September 2018 in Jersey. A number of launch events will be taking place throughout the island, including the official launch at the Arts Centre on Sunday 30th September, in conjunction with Jersey Festival of Words.


"Bram & Elie", a centenary anthology, will provide great pleasure for those familiar with the work of two of Jersey's best-loved Jèrriais authors, as well as opening the eyes of new readers to Jersey life in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Philip Le Sueur Mourant featured his character Bram Bilo (a proud ex-Centenier from St Ouën) for a series of adventures as an innocent abroad.  Edwin John Luce was a prolific writer, journalist and editor who composed poetry and prose in Jèrriais, French and English, using the pen-name Elie.  2018 marks the centenary of the deaths of both authors. 

This anthology makes their texts accessible with English adaptations alongside the Jèrriais text.
