Congratulations to Patrick Latimer

We’re delighted to see that Patrick Latimer has been longlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize for newcomers in children’s book illustration.

Patrick has been nominated for his illustration of Woolf, which he created alongside his brother Alex.

A wolf and a sheep fall in love. They have a son that they call Woolf – he’s half wolf, half woolly sheep! This is Woolf’s story. It s not easy being different not quite fitting in with one group or another. When Woolf tries to impress the wolves, he finds it fun for a while, but they’re a bit too wild. When he tries to follow the sheep, he finds it all a bit, well, boring. Can Woolf find his own way in life and make his own friends that like him for who he is, not who he’s trying to be?

The shortlist for the Klaus Flugge Prize will be announced on 16th May, and everyone at Bell Lomax Moreton is wishing Patrick and the wonderful Woolf the very best of luck!

Woolf is available here, and you can stay up to date with Patrick and his amazing illustrations on Twitter @patricklatimer.
