The Spy Who Loved School Dinners: Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards

The Spy Who Loved School Dinners, written by Pamela Butchart and illustrated by the very talented Thomas Flintham has deservedly been shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2015. Tom's illustrations complement Pamela's hilarious prose perfectly, so much so that another title in the series, Baby Aliens Got My Teacher, has also been shortlisted for the Red House Children's Book Award 2015. Good luck to both.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Our cinema tickets are booked for the long awaited, third and final film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which is released in cinemas this month. John Howe has worked in New Zealand for over 5 years as concept artist on Peter Jackson's epic film adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy adventure story, The Hobbit. Alongside Alan Lee, he has played a pivotal role in the creation of the characters and environments from pre-production all the way through to post-production, learning new techniques along the way.

As John returns to his studio in Switzerland, we're also looking forward to exploring behind the scenes in The Appendices of the recently released Extended Edition DVD of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

A Music Montage

This surreal montage illustration is by Andre Bergamin for a Victor Birgiss EP.

Andre was given the tracks to listen to and interpret in his own impressive way for this forthcoming record on the Love Potion label. And with a couple of keywords to keep in his mind; animals and Space, Andre went on to create this juxtaposed image for the cover artwork.

The store in South Molten Street, London was host to an evening of celebration and where Hannah's work for this new collection could be seen.

Songs of Europe

This amazing book of songs is illustrated by Christopher Corr for Carus in Stuttgart.

Christopher has made some vibrant paintings of the people and places from these European countries including the UK, Poland and Spain. And aided by his own global travels, he was the perfect artist to be part of this book. He says "I did lots of black and white drawings and full colour page illustrations and vignettes to beautify the book. Europe is a wonderful place. It's a joy to be European!"

Benji Davies : Goodnight Already (HarperCollins)

Meet Bear. He’s exhausted. All he wants is to go to sleep.

Meet Duck, Bear’s persistent next-door neighbor. All he wants is to hang out . . . with Bear.

Jory John, author of All My Friends Are Dead, and Benji Davies join together to create this standout hilarious picture book that will make bedtime memorable.

Following his international success with The Storm Whale and highly anticipated succeeding book On Sudden Hill (both Simon & Schuster), Benji Davies illustrates this soon-to-be classic bedtime story with a charming twist on his distinguished style. A hilariously playful take on the friend who just won’t quit, sleepy Bear endures the annoying antics of his energetic neighbour Duck through beautifully designed and textured spreads.

Goodnight already! has quickly gained critical acclaim only having just been released in the US market earlier this week, and featured first on Buzzfeed’s 25 Ridiculously Wonderful Books to read with Kids in 2015.
