I am delighted to be launching a curated programme of online events celebrating writers and illustrators of exceptional repute.
Each guest has been invited for their outstanding contribution to the world of children’s literature and for the exceptional quality of their writing and illustration. Audience involvement is encouraged. You can submit questions in advance and become an active participant in the event or simply enjoy the chat.
Join me for in-depth discussions exploring exceptional careers in literature and some memorable celebrations. All from the comfort of your armchair.
Nicola Davies is a zoologist and writer whose work includes nonfiction, poetry and fiction, which characteristically features the natural world.

She has published over 80 books for children and worked with top illustrators, Laura Carlin, Neal Layton, Jane Ray, Emily Sutton, Salvatore Rubbino and Cathy Fisher.

Her urban fairy tale The Promise (Laura Carlin illus.) has been made into an animated film by Climate Story Lab and will be screened on the BBC in October 2020. 3000 copies of The Promise will be distributed to economically disadvantaged children as part of the project.
