The Lion Tattoo is a finalist for the graphic novel category!

We are thrilled that The Lion Tattoo has been named as a finalist for the British Book Design and Production Awards 2018, in the Graphic Novel category! The awards aim to recognise and promote the excellence of British book design and production! We are incredibly excited for this witty picture book to be part of such an important literary event.

The Lion Tattoo is a contemporary retelling of an ancient story by Sufi philosopher and mystic, Rumi. It is illustrated by Atefeh Maleki Joo, in a bright and colourful style. It tells the cautionary tale of a man who says he wants tattoo of a lion. But as the tattoo artist begins her work, the young man feels the pain of the needle and decides that his lion doesn’t need a tail…or a stomach…or a mane! The Lion Tattoo is a humorous yet philosophical picture book for older readers, and is guaranteed to make you think as well as laugh!
