Purple Chicken Press

About Us

Purple Chicken Press was an idea, incubated and hatched by writer Angie Belcher and illustrator Debbie Tipuna. Bursting with creative ideas and artistic endeavours Purple Chicken Press gives these two chooks an avenue to develop, produce and give flight to their creativity.

Both Debbie and Angie have worked together previously on The Girls in the Kapahaka (Reed/Penguin) but it was the dream of producing the Read and Colour Collection, a set of highly visual, interactive picture books which became their defining project.

Without the restrictions of mainstream publishing Purple Chicken Press have the freedom to work from scratch, brood on ideas then develop and produce free-ranging original works for children.
