The Woofits The Woofits started life as a greeting card character at a company called W.N.Sharpe ltd in Bradford, West Yorkshire. They were originally concieved and illustrated by Roger Hutchings. Following good sales results, they were licensed for other products, duvet covers, books e.t.c. I think the books were ghost - written and Parkinson's name used to boost sales. I know this stuff because I was unfortunate enough to have to work at W.N.Sharpe at the time.
