Buy Quill Soup
We are utterly delighted to announce that the vibrant and energetic Quill Soup has been longlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2020! Quill Soup is the first of our books to be longlisted for this prestigious award. We are so very proud of illustrator Dale Blankenaar and author Alan Durant, the creators behind this gorgeous tale. What a beautiful collaboration.
Quill Soup is an African retelling, based on the traditional ‘stone soup’ fable. The bold, captivating illustrations are inspired by the wood sculpture of western Africa and the costumes and masks of the BWA people of Burkina Faso, together with Dale’s experimentation with primary colours. From South Africa, Dale has illustrated over 30 picture books and has won several international awards.
The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK’s oldest and most prestigious children’s book awards. The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal is awarded by children’s librarians and it is the only prize in the UK to solely reward outstanding illustration in a children’s book.
