Big-Ups Katie Saunders book shortlisted for Sheffield Book Award!

At Advocate art we are thrilled to announce that a children’s book illustrated by our very own Katie Saunders has been shortlisted for the Sheffield Children’s book award in the Baby category. Katies book Touch and Explore Little Frog is full of touch and feel patches and textures engaging little ones. Last year over 5000 local children took part in the Book Award and Baby Book Award project making it one of the largest local authority schemes in the country. The children who read and voted for their favourite books also attended the award ceremony in Sheffield which was also attended by 15 of the shortlisted authors and illustrators. We are all very excited for Katie and we wish her the best of luck! If you would like to see more of Katie’s work click here to visit her online portfolio on the Advocate website.
