illustrated by Lizzy Stewart

  • Who are you and what do you do?

I’m a freelance illustrator living in Edinburgh, Scotland. I spend most of my time drawing and dreaming of sunnier climes and the rest of the time aimlessly wandering the beautiful city I live in in the hope of stumbling across a good idea for a children’s book! I am also one half of Sing Statistics, an independent publishing project responsible for ‘We Are The Friction’.

  • Why did you pick the story you chose?

I chose Ella Minnow Peamainly because its one of those books that has been with me for years. I read it first when I when I was still at school. I lent it to everyone, not because its one of the great works of contemporary fiction but because its just so damn sweet. Its such a nice little world and such an endearing concept and so cleverly written that you can’t help but be charmed by it!

Lizzy is a talented and sweet person, and graciously agreed to contribute even though I asked her somewhat last-minute! I’m charmed to have her on board; you’ll be charmed when you see her first illustration on February 16! In the meantime, please check out her portfolio and take a gander at Sing Statistics. (It’s projects like that one that helped inspire Picture Book Report to be developed!)

Soon to come, that rascal S.britt shares a well known yarn!
