Louise Bolongaro

Head of Picture Books

Lou Bolongaro is a true picture book enthusiast. She’s worked in children’s publishing for over twenty years and, after cutting her teeth on novelty books, soon realised that picture books and poetry are what really quicken her heart. She started out at Macmillan Children’s Books, before becoming Editorial Director at Puffin in 2004 and then settled in the nest at Nosy Crow in late 2012. She always says that a picture book should make you “feel something” and only ever wants to create books that children clutch at bedtime with a demand to be read at least five times.
