Laura Barrett creates the ultimate gift edition of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale, The Snow Queen

Wow! We are so impressed by Laura Barrett’s amazing pop-up version of Christian Andersen’s classic tale, The Snow Queen. It is a beautiful book which took a huge amount of skill to create so we asked Laura to tell us how the project came about and her approach to the work.

Martyn Pick

Martyn Pick - Director for Live Action and Animation, also illustrator and storyboard artist has many great and creative  talents, so we were delighted that Martyn was chosen to illustrate one of the  Ladybird Experts books and specifically the title Witchcraft written by Suzannah Lipscomb.
Martyn's distinctive and illustrative painterly style was perfect for the book that describes witch hunts and  other darker witchcraft matters.

The Dinosaur That Pooped A Princess

The Dinosaur That Pooped A Princess by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter is the fifth title to be published this year featuring Garry Parsons' wonderful illustrations.

Garry has been particularly busy over the last few months; he's enjoyed creating artworks that have featured dragons, princesses, dinosaurs, fairies and out of this world adventures to name just a few! Never one to rest on his laurels, Garry has also enjoyed becoming a regular guest author on the much loved Picture Book Den.

We spoke to Garry about some of the titles he has worked on this year and why each book, although very different, means so much to him.
