kevin at antwerp boekenbeurs 2019

On Monday, Reeve & McIntyre showed up in Flanders to join our Dutch-language publishers at Boekenbeurs, Antwerp's Book Fair. We were thrilled how excited the team at Ballon Media were about our Roly-Poly Flying Pony! Check out that big wooden Kevin!

In that photo you can spot me, Philip, translator of the Kevin books Saskia Martens, publisher Philippe Nuyts, publicity's Jente Lambrechts and our editor Gaëlle Cooreman. And below, you can see the lovely shiny books - Het Verhaal van Kevin and Kevin op de Vlucht - and one of the team modelling the Kevin shirt!

They even had these cool little biscuit boxes for display, Philip and I were well chuffed. Interestingly, several people came up and mentioned how glad they were to come across the book's message of body positivity - Kevin's a very roly-poly pony, but he's happy and great at flying - so that was good to hear.

Here's the books' translator Saskia Martens, who came along to the fair with her family. It was great to meet her; so much of the success of the book depends on her writing skills!

hello, team scholastic uk!

Big relief, I've just finished the artwork for my next as-yet-unannounced picture book for Scholastic UK, the publishers who last spring published Grumpycorn:

One of my favourite things about going into the office is seeing where everyone works, and meeting some of the people who make the books happen! Scholastic is shaped like a big round loop, so it's possible to run the full circle and see everyone (which I do whenever I get a chance). Here, come along with me for a peek inside. Here's my new editor Fiz Osbourne, who's been working with me on the latest book. She regularly does #AskAChildrensBookEditor question-and-answer sessions on Twitter. I first met her at the Bath Children's Lit Fest way back in 2010, which was her first-ever time accompanying an author on an event trip. It was reassuring because we were both newbies!

Here's fab publicist Louisa Danquah, who set up the Waterstones Covent Garden book party and has been helping me stay organised with events.

painting, painting...

I'm not allowed to say what I'm working on, but after all these events, I having some hard-core work time in the studio, making a book. Painting is wonderful, but also takes SO MUCH TIME.
