Update On Chantelle & Burgen Thorne

This Tuesday it was announced that illustrators Chantelle and Burgen Thorne have won the Reader’s Favourite Gold Medal Award in the category of Fable for The Real Farmer In The Dell.

Written by Sandra Sutter and illustrations by Chantelle and Burgen Thorne

Artists, Chantelle and Burgen Thorne, bring the mouse’s corrected version to life beautifully. I loved seeing the desert scenery and the rodeo action through their eyes. Their artwork is filled with action and detail, making each panel a joy to study closely. The Real Farmer in The Dell is most highly recommended.

In addition to this, Speedy Monkey written by Jeanne Willis and illustrated by Chantelle and Burgen Thorne was recently published in Poland.

However, despite all of this fantastic news the couple are still unable to celebrate due to being attacked in their own home in South Africa on 21st September.

This is a local news story about their ordeal:

We are raising money to help with their care and recovery, as they do not have medical insurance. 
100% of the proceeds will be going to Chantelle & Burgen.

We are collecting through Go Fund Me;

Any amount you could donate would be hugely appreciated.

Many thanks from all at Bell Lomax Moreton Agency
