Cambridge Children's Books publisher seeks illustrators
If you can draw, read this!
New publishing venture Cambridge Children’s Books is looking for illustrators for a range of titles written by Gregoire Hodder.
The Waterbeach author’s first book, The Little Lotus Flower, was published earlier this month. It describes how “the little lotus grows from the muddy depth of the river to the light where something wonderful happens to her”.
The book was illustrated by Gregoire, who has two young children and set up Cambridge Children’s Books last year after acquiring a degree in education and English literature from the university’s Homerton College.
“You had to do a draft children’s book as part of the course and I really enjoyed it,” says Gregoire of the origins of his writing career. “The company is a vehicle. I think of it as a small independent publishing company.”
Now the search is on for an experienced illustrator.
“I like colourful illustration, and am looking for someone who can be creative and put their imprint on the book,” he said. “It would be a co-authoring arrangement for future books.”
The Little Lotus Flower is available at Heffers.
