We are delighted to share that Albertine, illustrator of the forthcoming Elsewhere book, My Little One, has won the 2020 Hans Christian Andersen Award! The award is the highest international distinction given to authors and illustrators of children’s books. The jury said of her beautiful work, “Whether sober or eccentric, low key or outlandish, the worlds of Albertine are always elegant, as if out of deference to children and her readers; to give greater significance to the page, her images are orchestrated in a gentle choreography and she mingles reality and fantasy, the trivial and the sublime, dream and memory.”

Congrats to Albertine, and look out for her My Little One, written by Germano Zullo and translated by Katie Kitamura, on October 27th, 2020!
