Marney's Mix-Up by Jane Rushmore

When a red squirrel tries to help Marney is afraid of this strange new creature.  As he becomes more and more ‘red-faced’ in his frustration Marney realises his silly mistake and makes a new friend. This story highlights how language and perceived differences cause unnecessary distrust and how deep down, our similarities are greater than our differences.

Marney’s Mix-up is a funny story of silly squirrels. Marney, a grey squirrel, is having a hard time finding his winter food. As he gathers nuts in the autumn he has an awkward encounter with a red squirrel from the other side of the park. This light-hearted and engaging book introduces young children to pre-conceived judgements which can often lead to misguided prejudice, and opens up conversations about racial bias. This comedic book for early years explores and celebrates similarities and differences, without misjudging or mistreating other people.

Written by Jane Rushmore.

Illustrated by Sally Darby.

Owlet Press was founded by Samuel Langley-Swain in 2018, working with authors and illustrators with a shared passion – picture books which reflect the true diversity in children’s lives. Focusing on the challenges children face today and packaging these big issues into inclusive and accessible stories for small readers to digest and discuss with friends, families and schools. This indie children’s book publisher aims to change the world one book at a time, along with the best authors and illustrators to tell these stories.

Owlet Press have always published books that are 'incidentally inclusive' from day one and look to push this further with every title. With authors and illustrators from all walks of life - diversity is the driving ethos within this publisher. Owlet believe that it is key for young readers of colour to see children like them (and for white, non-disabled children to see children that don't always look like them) in books experiencing the joy and magic of playful, imaginative stories - a belief that we share at Babipur.
