Raymond Briggs honoured

Imagination and Illustrations

Last Thursday, our third Lifetime Achievement Award was received by the remarkable Raymond Briggs, for his outstanding contribution to children's literature. From the unforgettable The Snowman to his hilarious working-class Father Christmas, Raymond's illustrations breathe life into stories that are gripping, joyous and moving, and have enchanted audiences for generations.

This month, we're honouring Raymond's work by celebrating the magic of illustrations. Reading doesn't have to be all about words; from picture books to graphic novels, illustration-heavy stories come in forms that will appeal to kids of all ages. With the Imagine Children's Festival running from 9 - 19 February, now is the perfect time to share the wonderful world of illustrations with your child.
