We hope you enjoyed your first glimpse of our new books! Here are more samples of artwork from upcoming titles…


Advance copies of next season’s books are beginning to trickle into our offices in Oxford and Cambridge! This means that many of us are getting our first chance to enjoy them. We are so excited and can’t wait to share them with you, so here is a preview of some of the artwork…


The first illustrator to visit us in our new Oxford office is Grahame Baker-Smith. He drove over from his home on Camden Row in Bath to be our guest of honour at a lunch hosted by Nancy and me for our top three UK Ambassadors. Grahame’s work is breathtaking in its originality, poetic in its rendering of drama, colour, symbol, detail. He is one of the finest draughtsmen I know. He has agreed to spend the day away from his studio, where he is working on a magnificent edition of Robin of the Greenwood for us. And he has come bearing a gift.


Thank you to everyone who left a comment and entered the contest, we loved hearing from you! Congratulations to Melissa Nassraway, our winner. This contest is now closed, please stay tuned for more!

It’s podcast Friday and if you’re not put off by the quest for fame, then have a listen to this thought-provoking tale of a mouse who wanted to make his name known. This interesting story is taken from one of acclaimed storyteller Hugh Lupton’s Barefoot collection, Tales of Mystery and Magic, wonderfully illustrated by Italian artist, Agnese Baruzzi.
