In April we launched our brand new children’s imprint – Flying Eye Books – and, excuse the pun, it’s really taken off.
Since then we’ve had the pleasure of inspiring many young readers with picture books and comics by some of the most talented authors and illustrators around. So, we’re delighted to announce that some new titles are now available to buy in your local bookshop and from our online store.
Have you ever wondered what the truth was behind Bigfoot? Or perhaps how the unicorn lost its horn? You have! Then you’ll love Monsters and Legends written by Davide Cali and illustrated by Gabriella Giandelli. It’s a delightful journey into the world’s most enduring myths and legends and the truth behind.
From author-illustrator Julia Wauters comes One Night, Far From Here: a beautifully-bound, magical bestiary. Peppered throughout with acetate pages, Julia conjures up enchanting natural habitats, filled with all manner of feathered, furry and slippery beasts. With each page turn, a landscape is revealed, teeming with the insects, birds and animals that live there.
Next up, leading illustrator, Atak, confronts our preconceptions of familiar scenes in an effortlessly funny picture book. Step into Atak’s Topsy Turvy World and get a whole new perspective on the world you left behind.
Finally, Marguerite Abouet and Mathieu Sapin give us a character we can truly fall in love with: Akissi! Our deliciously mischievous heroine is a West African girl who never seems to get things right.
We’re extremely proud of all our new books and we hope you know a little person who’ll enjoy them as much as we do!
