Joseph Hobdell is primary school teacher from Oxfordshire, currently teaching in Malaysia. He regularly reads illustrated books to children at school to entertain and inspire learning. Taking inspiration from the books he has used in the classroom, Joseph has written the story But Bats Don't Wear Hats. After reading it to children between five and eight years old and receiving an overwhelming response, he decided to try and have the story published. "I wanted to try and create a story which follows a journey that could be enjoyed by parents and children together" Joseph tells us.
