The Magic Jungle - Limited edition print

A series of enchanting signed and numbered prints by the award-winning author and illustrator. "Polly Horner...combines truth and magic in a strange and striking way...." Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times.

Polly Horner is both artist and storyteller, a creator of dreamlike and evocative illustrations.

Her first children's book, Polly and the North Star won the BOOKTRUST Early Years Award 2004 for Best New Illustrator.

'Grandpa and the Stars' has just been selected for inclusion in 'Images 34', the source book of British Illustrators published yearly by the AOI (the Association of Illustrators), and will be exhibited in their 2010 travelling exhibition.

"I love the process of writing and illustrating picture books. Sometimes ideas for a story come from something someone says or something I see. Sometimes it is inspired by someone's character or a child's circumstances. My first Picture book, Polly and the North Star came from a childhood memory. At least that is where it began. Sometimes ideas come into my mind like gifts from another place. I can see the story in it's entirety like a picture." Polly Horner

Polly also takes great pleasure in being commissioned to illustrate portraits. She usually take the theme of a birthday party or other celebration, with your child (or children) surrounded by their favourite animals. These make affordable and entirely fantastic personalised presents and are much cherished. For further details please email Julian Thomas.
