Best New Illustrator 2019

Thank you so much to independent booksellers who have kicked off Independent Book Week by voting me inaugural winner of the Independent Booksellers’ Best New Illustrator Award!

I am honoured and delighted to receive this from such a wonderful group of people, who do so much to support new voices like mine and who spread their love of children’s books in their communities.

Part of my prize was to design a cover for this year’s Best New Children’s Books supplement distributed in today’s Guardian newspaper. Here it is!
