One to keep an eye out for


Reading on Book Brunch I was excited to discover that Polly Dunbar’s series of Tilly titles (published by Walker) are to be made into a series for the small screen. I love Polly Dunbar’s work and Penguin is absolutely in my top ten favourite picture books.

Penguin by Polly Dunbar

I really hope that JAM media, the guys working on the series, do as good a job of bringing it to life as Tiger Aspect did for Charlie and Lola. Like Lauren Child, Polly Dunbar’s illustrations are magical, childlike and fascinating just how they are and there should be huge effort made for the TV series to remain faithful to them. I find it upsetting when I see some beautiful children’s illustrative work made into clunky television.

If you love Polly’s work, take a look at her puppet show. I’ve met the Shoe Baby puppet and it is amazing – can’t wait to take Milo to see it someday!
