Over the past couple of weeks at David Higham Associates, we have:
Cressida Cowell for winning the British Book Award for Best Audiobook: Fiction with Wizards of Once, narrated by David Tennant and published by Hodder Children’s Books. We were over the moon to see it described as “the benchmark” for children’s audio.
And Laura Mucha for being shortlisted for the CLiPPA 2022 with the collection Being Me, co-authored with Liz Brownlee and Matt Goodfellow. Being Me ‘is such an important collection of poetry for our time, bearing witness to children’s thoughts, feelings, experiences and emotions in a way that genuinely offers recognition, affirmation and hope’.
‘Claudia Roden has written the bible of Jewish cookery – scholarly, soulful and seductive.’ – Yotam Ottolenghi
‘One can’t imagine a better food book than this, ever: for the reader and the cook.’ – Nigella Lawson
Nicola Upson on the publication of Dear Little Corpses, the 10th book in the Josephine Tey series and Sunday Times Crime Book of the month, published by Faber Books.
And publication of Jacqueline Wilson’s new book The Magic Faraway Tree: A New Adventure. Enid Blyton’s enchanting classic novel was Jacqueline’s own favourite book as a young child, and now she has revisited the beloved magical world, weaving a brand-new story perfect for the next generation of young readers.
Merlin Sheldrake’s creative collaboration with Stella McCartney. She is using a leather substitute made from fungi in her latest collection and videos of Merlin talking about fungi were incorporated into the campaign and used on her channels.
