Luke Kemp (Jo’s son) can take much of the credit for this website and Granny Annie’s Ultimate Alphabet Book being a lifelong fan of his mum’s work. As a child living in Manchester, Luke would listen to the stories Jo made up and these made a lasting impression on him.
Fast forward a few decades and now as a content creator/web developer, Luke pressed Jo to complete all 26 (A-Z) BoodleBobs stories. But when the project started, and with little budget to speak of, Luke had no idea how many hats he’d (ultimately) end up wearing. Concept design, illustration, animation, sound production, content creation and web development. Not just for one but for all 26 stories.
It’s fair to say that along the way BoodleBobs has had its fair share of setbacks but with persistence and an unwavering belief in the stories he loved as a child, the project has reached fruition with Granny Annie’s Ultimate Alphabet Book.
