Bookfest Is Coming!

Children's Books Ireland has just unveiled this year's Bookfest poster. Every year, CBI invites an incredibly talented illustrator to design the poster for the annual event, and this year the commission went to Kevin Waldron. Kevin has already made his mark on the illustration world with a picture book version of the Edward Lear poem 'The Owl and the Pussycat' and his first title, Mr. Peek at the Zoo (2009, Templar). His next project is a collaboration with the truly magnificent Michael Rosen to be published this autumn by Walker Books..... and the Bookfest poster is absolute class!
The Children's Book Festival takes place all over Ireland every October.
