Publication Celebration

Back again because I just have to tell you about the wonderful evening I had on Tuesday 2nd June. At the Illustration Cupboard in London Bloomsbury publishing celebrated the launch of Sarah Dyer's picture book The Girl with the Birds-Nest Hair. The charming and very self-effacing Sarah was an inspiration and somewhat overwhelmed by the attention, she gave a suitable short thank you speech, to say just that, after her editor welcomed the invited guests. Examples of Sarah's amazing art work graced the walls of the gallery, copies of her books were happily signed and a wonderful buzz permeated the air.

Sarah's work is amazing, her book very funny and hugely appealing, thanks to Sarah and to Bloomsbury for a wonderful evening. Have a look at Sarah's book, pick up a copy to read, admire the artwork - a combination of collage and sketch with pieces individually cut out and put together in a jigsaw-like style and encourage your children to remember that having their hair brushed may not be such a bad decision after all!
