Were delighted to announce that Thames & Hudson will publish the debut picture book THE STAR IN THE FOREST by Glasgow-based author and illustrator Helen Kellock.  Helen won the 2018 Batsford Prize for Childrens Illustration and was highly commended as part of the Macmillan Book Prize. Acquiring the book from agent Lucy Juckes, Thames & Hudson paid tribute to Kellocks remarkable talent.

Beautiful imagery.

I looked at this poem just last week with my Dundee uni students! A favourite ๐Ÿ’•

Makes me remember early mornings at Lake of Menteith.

I love Kathleen Jamie's work.
