A Bit Lost is launched in Spanish! It is published with the AMAZING editoria milrazones. Have a look at their books ‘Learning without Dogmas: Secular Education for Co-existence’ (great!!!) Im so proud to have owl published by them. They are keen to support the fair trade projects also. For every copy of ‘Un poco perdido’ sold we are donating a euro to a project to build a library in Colombia. Im really happy to have met them, they sounds GREAT! Hopefully we can do exciting work in future. This window is in Liberia Gil bookstore in Santander.
Little Owl Lost has just won the first prize in the Marion Vannett Ridgway Award in the US! The Ridgway award is given in honour of the artist’s representative Marion Vannett Ridgway and is awarded to debut illustrators and authors.
