Welcome to Archie’s Adventures

Every book is so much more than a story...

My name is Stephanie Harrison and I am really excited to introduce you to my fun series of children’s illustrated stories. Each exciting adventure features Archie the dog, and his friend Berrybug who meet some very interesting characters!

The stories unravel, sharing insights which can empower children, supporting their mental and emotional health and well-being along the way.

My vision is beautifully brought to life by the illustrator, Sarah Leigh Wills.

The books are great for reading aloud in the classroom and for snuggly bedtime stories. 

Archie’s Adventures in a Yumscrubbilydumptious World!

We are all different and that’s what makes us all incredible!”

A wonderfully FUN children’s picture book about how we all experience the world in our own unique way!

When Archie the dog tumbles through a magical hole and meets a new friend, Berrybug, he discovers a world filled with exciting new experiences.

From floating on the fluffiest clouds and travelling through a rainbow waterfall, to devouring some yumscrubbilydumptious treats, it’s set to be the adventure of a lifetime!

There’s just one problem. Archie and Berrybug can’t agree on what they enjoyed most… it’s almost as if they had completely different experiences.

If only they could find a way to understand one another… or can they?

Children will LOVE spotting and counting the slug-like creatures hidden throughout the book!

Archie’s Adventure books are great for conversations about…

Archie’s Adventures with the Flying Fluppertyupperties!

Archie the dog and his friend Berrybug are whizzing off to see the planets on a flying Fluppertyupperty. But when they get there, it’s not at all what they were expecting…  

When a golden thread suddenly appears between the planets, their curiosity is ignited, and they decide to follow it.

It leads them to a wonderfully strange, magical world filled with Tiggerlywiggerlies and Bibberlybobberlies, where nothing is as it seems. The friends must work together to make decisions and find their way through some fun challenges.

At first, they’re keen to dive straight in without giving it a thought, but by working together, they soon learn that perhaps there’s a better way. They just need to STOP and THINK first!
