“At Tickled Moon, our aim is to create heartwarming children’s books that kids (and parents!) will want to read again and again. We want our books to not only delight with their personalisations – many of which are unique and great fun – but also with our original stories and joyful illustrations. We hope you love them!” – Alison & Simon

SIMON ROBERTS

Tickled Moon was created in 2019 by husband and wife, Simon Roberts and Alison Reddihough. They live in an old dairy in Sussex, England, with their 2 teenage boys and Merlin (a very cool black cat).

Alison and Simon are used to creative endeavours, having both started out as actors and then later delving into filmmaking. Their film company Amulet Films produced two award winning short films, one of which “Ghosthunter” was shortlisted for an Oscar and became the subject of the book “How To Make Great Short Films, The Making of Ghosthunter”.

Aside from their personalised children’s books, Alison loves writing anything from peachy poetry to screenplays. Whilst Simon is the creative technical whizz at all things web and film/video related. 

Together as Tickled Moon they hope to spread a wee bit more positivity and playfulness in the world and have many other heartwarming, fun personalised books and other products lined up for the next few years.
