A visit from Jackie Morris

This week, we were very lucky to have a visit from the incredibly talented author and artist Jackie Morris. You will know Jackie's artwork from her many beautiful books including The Snow Leopard, Tell Me a Dragon and most recently, East of the Sun, West of the Moon.

East of the Sun, West of the Moon
 Jackie spent her time at The GT signing copies of some of her books, as well as enjoying a browse around the shop. She was particularly enamoured with Jon Klassen's new book This is Not My Hat (as are we) and it was great to have the chance to discuss different books and styles of illustration with such an expert!

We hope Jackie will come back at some point for a more public event and to meet some of our lovely customers, so we will keep you posted on that.  In the meantime, we still have some signed copies in stock, so do come and have a look, they're all gorgeous.

Thanks for coming Jackie, we hope to see you again soon!
