Illustrator’s Guidelines:

Every day we receive many art samples and queries regarding illustrating books for our list. While all our books are for children, the specific style and genre of book dictates the type of illustration needed. As a result, we maintain a large reference file, which assists us in finding the right illustrator for each project.

If you would like us to consider your work for inclusion in our active file, please supply copies (colour photocopies are fine) which we may retain. The samples should be representative of your abilities and interests. It is important that we see how you handle drawing children, since most books we publish require illustrating children to some degree. A cover letter outlining other experience is helpful, and allows us to seek out additional samples of your published work.

Due to the large number of queries we receive, we cannot respond to each one personally. We will only contact you if a suitable project arises.

Queries should be directed to:
