Bright Artist Paddy Donnelly makes waves in China

Paddy Donnelly’s debut author-illustrated book has been included in the highly competitive New Reading Council’s list ‘The Best Children’s Books in China 2020’. This prestigious accolade recognizes the top 24 Children’s & YA books published in China.

The Vanishing Lake is published by Yehoo Press, and has been released in Chinese and English in China. It has already made the bestseller lists there, and English copies in the first print round sold out within a week of release.

Paddy’s picture book is a captivating tale that celebrates a young girl's determination, a granddad's wisdom, and the fantastical wonders of the natural world.

Paddy is currently doing a virtual blog tour to celebrate the book’s release.
