Hungry Tomato is a young forward-thinking children’s publisher based in Cornwall. We work with both award-winning and brilliant up-and-coming illustrators and authors to produce high interest, non-fiction, soft learning books. 


Our mission…is to switch kids onto reading with our fun, fact-packed books, whilst our art, activity and puzzle books will get kids into being creative, building projects and exploring nature away from the TV.


With worldwide appeal, our books are designed to stimulate and engage a child’s natural curiosity both in school and at home, wherever that home may be.

Sharon couldn't do without books, and loves sharing them with her nieces, nephews and grandchildren.

When Sharon isn't at her desk, she's walking Scout or playing golf. When all of that is done, she whips out the paints and canvas and tries her hand at abstract art!
