Ingrid Godon is a Flemish children’s book illustrator. A born observer, her evocative drawings are charged with great seriousness and strangeness, with immense compassion for ordinary people. She was awarded the Boekenpauw Award and the Gouden Griffel in 2001 for her book with André Sollie, Wachten op Matroos. She also won the Boekenpauw Award in 2015 for Ik denk. Godon’s drawings in I Wish were exhibited at the museum M in Leuven and around Europe, and I Wish was nominated for the Deutsche Jugendliteraturpreis in 2011.
