Week 28 - Lydia Monks

We find the book in Sheffield this week, visiting picture book royalty Lydia Monks.

Lydia’s first children’s book, ‘I Wish I Were a Dog’ won the Smarties Book Prize in 1999. Since then, she has worked on around seventy titles. As an illustrator, she has collaborated with Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy and Julia Donaldson. Lydia is the illustrator behind the much acclaimed, best seller ‘What The Ladybird Heard’. She lives in Sheffield with her two little girls.

Thank you, Lydia for a fantastic spread! If you want to see more of Lydia's work take a trip to her website, for the latest news you can follow her blog and twitter. Now off to a legend in children's book world, the fantastic Chris Riddell will get his paws on the book next. We can't wait to see what he has in store for her red bear...
