It’s been an absolute pleasure working on The Green Giant by Katie Cottle, for Pavilion Children’s Books.

The Green Giant is a brilliant new picture about a girl who discovers a giant made of plants. It highlights our concern for the environment, greening our cities, guerrilla gardening and making the world a better place.

Publisher Neil Dunnicliffe, said: “As soon as we saw Katie’s entry to the Batsford Prize we knew we wanted to work with her and decided to offer a book contract there and then at the awards ceremony. Katie is a brilliant illustrator and storyteller and a star in the making. The Green Giant is a funny and optimistic story with stunning illustrations. It carries an important message lightly and with beauty.”

Katie Cottle has signed a two-book deal with Pavilion Children’s Books after winning Batsford Prize presented by the publisher last year.

Cottle graduated from the Illustration course at the University of the West of England in 2017 and has since been working as a freelance illustrator.

The Batsford Prize is organised by art book publisher Batsford, which gives prizes for applied art, fine art, fashion and illustration. Pavilion presents the award for children’s illustration.
