The SAA are very pleased to be supporting the World Illustration Awards by sponsoring The SAA Agents Award for New Talent.





We’re celebrating the publication of the first book in a thrilling new all-action environmental adventure series by debut author, Philip Kavvadias, published by Chicken House.



Mission Microraptor is a fast and funny story about two boys and a Microraptor in a dark, mysterious forest with a squad of army-trained mercenaries searching for them. What could possibly go wrong?

Falling behind their classmates on a school trip to the Alps, Finn and Milo stumble upon an egg buried in ice. Later that night it hatches and a 65-million-year-old baby is born: Arty is a Microraptor brought back from extinction. But keeping her safe proves harder. Wicked scientists will do anything to get their hands on her, and soon Finn and Milo must run for their lives…

With illustrative echoes of the work of TinTin creator Hergé, this cover is the absolute epitome of leap-off-the-shelf action adventure which Euan Cook is so good at. And the energetic line of Cook’s interior artwork is the perfect foil to Kavvadias’ funny, middle-grade romp of an adventure. We’re looking forward to the rest of the series.

Euan Cook is represented by Arena Illustration.
