I knew I’d love The Grotlyn. It’s nostalgic — think Janet and Allan Ahlberg’s Happy Families or Burglar Bill, only with an edge, and a thrill of the macabre. Dickensian London is captured so beautifully, it’s already filmic in it’s composition.
Sarah Jennings’ illustrations are full of line and movement — her characters springing into action at each turn of the page.
This stunning cover illustration for Enid Bagnold’s, National Velvet is by the very talented Graham Carter, commissioned by Egmont for their Modern Classic series.
We just love Euan Cook’s cover illustrations for Gabrielle Kent’s fantasy series, Alfie Bloom - published this month by Scholastic.
Euan’s eye-catching images and lettering beautifully reflect the spell-binding adventure stories about eleven year-old Alfie whose dull and lonely life is transformed after discovering that he has inherited a castle full of wonders and an ancient magic hidden inside him. However, dangerous forces are after his powerful magic and it’s up to him, his family and his friends to keep the magic safe.
