Following the festivity of World Book Day earlier this month, it was timely to go behind the scenes of the magical new picture book The World Book Day Monster written by Adam & Charlotte Guillain. The book, from Egmont, is a celebration of stories, capturing all the excitement and imagination the day inspires as one young reader tries to find someone to share the magic of her favourite book with.
Carrie May was honoured to be asked to illustrate Abi Elphinstone's World Book Day title Ever Dark published by Simon & Schuster. Carrie's stunning cover transports us to another world, making her ethereal style a great choice for this enthralling tale.

Katerina Kerouli - has been busily working non stop since she joined Artist Partners on two new picture books, but she has also found some time to produce other images as samples for her folio.
Her work is both charming and quirky. The dog was inspired by the film Isle of Dogs, and the bats were just a bit of fun.
We have updated Katerina's website folio with other fabulous new images, to see more of Katerina's work please go to the website.
