A children's bookshop in Sussex has been creating awareness for charity Family Support Work, by asking some well known children's illustrators to contribute an owl doodle for display in the shop.

CBeebies illustrator Clare Elsom, Laura Watkins and Louise Yates were among the famous contributors.

Said Maggie Simons, director of FSW, said: "We just got in touch with a whole bunch of illustrators to see if they would be interested and it's just really taken off.

"We have now started getting requests from artists wanting to do a doodle for us. It's created a real buzz about the shop and of course the work that FSW does with families throughout Sussex."

The Illustrations will be on display throughout the shop over the next couple of months and there are plans for a possible auction of the originals.

You can see the Wise Owl Doodles at Wise Books, 14 Sutton Rd, Seaford, East Sussex, and follow them on twitter @WisebookFSW.
