Nosy Crow acquires two picture books by Waterstone's 'Picture This' short-listed illustrator Steven Lenton

Kate Burns, Head of Picture Books for Nosy Crow says:

From the moment the animator and merchandise designer and illustrator, Steven Lenton, came to see us in our tiny offices, I knew that we had to publish him. And it had to be special. His genuine enthusiasm for children's books and literature combined with his fabulous talent translated into a portfolio full of images with a contemporary, fresh palette, and wonderful characterisations of both people and animals - an increasingly rare ability! His work has a timeless quality, genuine warmth and is also really funny.
We feel he is a rare new talent and we are thrilled to be publishing his debut picture book, a hilarious tale about two bungling burglar dogs who come good in the end, written by the award-winning author, Tracey Corderoy. Tracey's first book for Nosy Crow, Hubble Bubble, Granny Trouble is illustrated by the highly acclaimed and award-winning Joe Berger and is out this month.

Steven says:

My ambition has always to be a children's book maker and I'm very proud to be realising this dream with Nosy Crow. I feel that the Nosy Crow team really understand my work, which I hope will sit nicely in their fantastic list!
