CATS AHOY! wins Roald Dahl Funny Prize.

Cats Ahoy! the book I illustrated written by Peter Bently for MacMillan publishers has won first prize at the Booktrust Roald Dahl Funny Prize awards in the 0-6 yr olds category, the winner for the 7-12 yr was Liz Pichon with her book The Wonderful World of Tom Gates. The award ceremony was on Tuesday 8th November at The Unicorn Theatre for Children, amongst the nominees was Mr Terry Jones, Leigh Hodgkinson, Alexis Deacon, Russell Ayto and many more fine folks...

I'm super chuffed with the result as its my debut picture book - beginners luck. The book and also signed prints of the artwork is available to buy from my shop if you're interested.

Its also been nominated for the CILIP Katie Greenaway prize amongst an incredibly strong list of illustrators including Oliver Jeffers, David Roberts and many more...

I'm currently working on my second book with Peter Bently at the moment which should be out sometime next year.

Hola, quizás os interese saber que tenemos una colección que incluye el relato 'Parson’s Pleasure' de Roald Dahl en versión original conjuntamente con el relato 'The Other Two' de Edith Wharton.

El formato de esta colección es innovador porque permite leer directamente la obra en inglés sin necesidad de usar el diccionario al integrarse un glosario en cada página.

Tenéis más info de este relato y de la colección Read&Listen en
