Wild Thing!

The 6th of February saw the release of 'Wild Thing', a young readers/adult novel written by the most splendid Emma Barnes, which I had the awesome pleasure of illustrating in glorious black and white. It is the first book in a series of three, and I am not exaggerating when I say how excited I am to get cracking on the next books in this series.

The story is about 'WILD THING' aka Josephine, a messy, raukus, rock-loving, bum-biting naughty sister who is the bane of her sister's life!

Wild Thing was an absolute treat to illustrate, it was children's fiction in top form: hilarious, fast-paced and incredibly moving, and allowed me to draw in my scratchiest, most ink-splattable style, which is only ever a good thing in my book. I also often seem to draw very 'boy' orientated books, so being able to draw a story about two sisters was a massive breath of fresh air and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Wild Thing is published by Scholastic, and is out NOW (go get it, go get it and thank me later!) I do believe Amazon have a 'look inside' thing going on over here too...
