Pre-order Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me
Fantastic news! Eloise Greenfield has been awarded the Coretta Scott King-Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement. The prestigious award celebrates an African American author or illustrator who has made a significant and lasting contribution to literature.
Eloise was born in North Carolina and grew up in Washington where she still lives. She has published over 40 books, of which many have won awards, such as the Coretta Scott King Award for African Dream.
Tiny Owl are thrilled to be the first publisher bringing this beloved American author to the UK by publishing her upcoming poetry book Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me. It follows the lives of a young boy, Jace, and his puppy Thinker. Thinker cannot keep himself from making poetry, which might become an issue when he goes with Jace to school for Pet’s day. Thinker My Puppy Poet and Me features fantastic collage style illustrations from Iranian illustrator Ehsan Abdollahi, who made headlines last year after he was declined a visa to attend to the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Through a social media movement spearheaded by the book industry the visa decision was reversed and Ehsan was able to attend the festival.
Winning this award is an incredible achievement and reflects on a lifetime of amazing work. Well done Eloise; Tiny Owl are very proud!
