Jim Kay shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal

hp1_troll-spread_layersMany congratulations to Jim Kay, shortlisted for the illustrations in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, published by Bloomsbury. This is such a well-deserved honour. The book itself is by no means new but Jim’s ability to visualise a new Harry Potter world when the films had already done that with such success was an enormous task. His imaginative skills are extraordinary. Just look at how he showed the ghosts, and how he gave us some background information on the life of trolls. He is a miracle man.
