Congratulations Illustrator John Shelley
Congratulations to SCBWI member John Shelley whose illustrations are in a new non-fiction picture book for Charlesbridge (Penguin/Random House) on Shakespeare and London's original Globe theatre, out on 22nd March. 
I'm sure you'll agree the front cover looks amazing. 

John did a lot of historical research, referring to both old texts and images, to make sure his illustrations of 17th century London were as accurate as possible, and he based his illustrations of the theatre on the recreation of the Globe which stands in London today.

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
