Happy Publication Day to Jo Williamson and Petunia Paris’s Parrot!


We are wishing a very Happy Publication Day to Petunia Paris’s Parrot by Katie Haworth and illustrated by Jo Williamson!

Katie’s hilarious tale of Petunia and her pet parrot is brought to life by Jo’s classic and witty illustrations.


“When I was first handed the text for Petunia Paris’s Parrot, I knew immediately that it was my kind of story. It had all the elements that I love to illustrate: a child talking to a parrot, a butler and a grand house. Lots of images immediately popped into my head, and I couldn’t wait to get started.PPP2
Having only illustrated my own stories so far, it was quite a different process to work on someone else’s text. It was both liberating and challenging to decide how my illustrations could work with this text, and I’m really proud of how it all came together.”
