World Book Day

Books are brought to life by creative authors who use various writing skills to capture the interest of the reader BUT, what about the illustrators?

Illustrators are extremely talented and draw super, impressive pictures so we can enjoy our books even more!

A perfect example of a successful illustrator is Dapo Adeola


Dapo Adeola is an award-winning illustrator and designer who creates characters and images that challenge expectations around race and gender in a fun and upbeat way. He is the co-creator and illustrator of best selling picture book Look Up and Space Detective!
