A campaign for Fritz and Franzi involving Natalie Kilany's Love Bug illustration has been shortlisted for the Art Directors Club Switzerland. The commission, from Jung von Matt Switzerland, required Natalie to tackle the delicate subject of youth violence. Natalie's clever composition evokes the loneliness of the situation in this very triumphant piece of art. Fritz and Franzi is a magazine for parents, guardians and institutions covering all matters relating to the problems one can face when bringing up children and adolescents.

It's a busy month for Alex T Smith with 2 publications hitting the bookstands. His delightful new picture book Ella, published by Scholastic tells the story of a little ladybird with big dreams. And his third book in the series for Hodder Children's Books, Claude at the Circus really demonstrates Alex's comic talent for writing as well as illustrating. A walk in the park leads to a walk on a tightrope when Claude and Sir Bobblysocks join the circus.
