Sally, the Arctic tern, is Orse's friend, guide and conscience; happy to help wherever she can.
Orse's best friend at school who often treats him to delicious pies and cakes—a very good chef indeed!
Orse, the polar bear, lives in a town called Snowville, high up in the Arctic. He is a general handyman for all the folks that live there. A good natured fellow, he has many friends but often ends up in trouble with the Lord Mayor, Sir Stanley Walrus. Orse is very fond of food; his first story sets him on a quest for some cheese. Surely this is an easy task that won't upset Sir Stanley? Or will it …?
Lollipop Publishing is based in the UK. Our intention is to provide children with stories and characters that have heart and soul, as well as a good moral reference. Entertaining parents is also a goal we pursue. We are dedicated to providing a quality series of children's books, printed in the UK to support British companies. This philosophy obviously carries a financial penalty for us, but we feel that it is more important to support home-grown industries as many printing companies in the UK cannot compete with pricing from abroad.
We hope you will support us in our efforts to bring the joy of reading to children and adults alike. Looking to the future, Lollipop Publishing’s intentions are to develop an animation of The World of Orse, creating a new and wider audience for this fun-loving polar bear.
We are proud to announce that 10% of all our profits are donated to the charity Children With Cancer UK, based at Great Ormond Street Hospital. For more information about this charity, please see their website childrenwithcancer.org.uk.
Snowville's doctor, runs the local hospital and is kept busy with folks who have slipped on the ice. He also has a pet … a cat named Scat!
Jugglers by nature and full of mischief, especially towards Orse.
