Last week we had a very special visitor: we met Ingela P Arrhenius, illustrator of the award-winning Felt Flaps series, for the first time! Ingela lives and works in Sweden and this was the first time we’d met her in person – despite us now having published several books by her.
And to celebrate the occasion, we filmed a Q&A between Ingela and Kate – you can watch it at the top of the post, and find out about Ingela’s inspirations, how she works, what she likes to draw (and what she doesn’t like to draw…) and get an early look at one of our next books with Ingela – which won’t be published for another year.
If you’ve not yet discovered Ingela’s beautiful artwork, you can find out more about the Felt Flaps series here – and here’s a piece by Kate, written after Where’s Mr Lion won the Sainsbury’s Children’s Book of the Year award.
