Jez’s Lucky Day
“This impressive book should be in every primary school”
Such is the impression the children’s fire safety book ‘Jez’s Lucky Day’ made on award-winning author and educator Tamsin Winter.
Written by Michelle Oddy and Kate Strudwick, and illustrated by Jason Hodges, this story of a boy from the South Wales Valleys, his paper dragon and the school hamster has been enchanting children of all backgrounds and nationalities across the globe since 1998. Searching for the hamster on every page this big book draws children into the everyday life of Jez, and how playing with fire can have disastrous, unintended outcomes.
A firm favourite with children, fire services, teachers and families alike, this popular book is now in its second edition and is distributed exclusively by fabtic.

Handbook of Behavioral Criminology
This multi-disciplinary volume published by Springer in 2017 applies a criminological lens to a range of different behaviours, and includes a chapter on child and adolescent firesetting.
Providing the first written collaboration between Professor David Kolko and fabtic’s Managing Director Joanna Foster, the chapter explores the characteristics of children who set fires, family influences upon the behaviour such as limited supervision, the role of assessments, and examples of the different interventions available.
