We were so thrilled this week to learn that Jenny Cooper had won yet another award for her thoughtful and beautiful art.
Best Picture Book in The New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults was awarded to Jim’s Letters, by Glyn Harper, illustrated by Jenny Cooper. Based on the relationship between two brothers and their correspondence during World War 1, this book is a heart-wrenching story, testament to the pre-internet written word as a means of recording and retelling history. The judges say Jim’s Letters has exceptional balance, pacing and design.
Who knows what the future holds for the illustrations she did for our books, but we cant wait to find out!
