Earlier this week we had some festive drinks and canapés in the Crow’s Nest with our authors and illustrators, along with agents, librarians, booksellers, journalists and other friends to celebrate the end of another year – and here, by popular demand, are some of the pictures. The picture at the top of this page is of one of the many handmade crows (a decorative stroke of genius masterminded by Stephanie) with which we decorated the office.
Here are Just Right for Christmas illustrator Ros Beardshaw with Playbook Farm paper engineer Corina Fletcher
Captain Beastlie’s Birthday author Lucy Coats with agent Sophie Hicks
The Grunts author Philip Ardagh with Lyn Gardner, author of the Olivia books
Paula Harrison, author of the Rescue Princesses series, with S.C. Ransom, author of the Small Blue Thing trilogy
Hubble Bubble, Granny Trouble illustrator Joe Berger with Superhero Dad author Tim Knapman (brandishing Kirsty’s excellent homemade cheese straws)
