An Interview With Nick Sharratt

The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.

We are thrilled to present an interview by the leading children's book author and illustrator, Nick Sharratt. Nick has illustrated close to 250 books. They range from board books for babies to novels for young teenagers. He has worked with authors including Julia Donaldson, Jeremy Strong, Michael Rosen, Giles Andreae, Kaye Umansky, Kes Gray and most notably Dame Jacqueline Wilson and he's also written around 40 of his own books. Nick has also won quite a few prizes and he was the official illustrator for World Book Day in 2006. 

Nick has his own website if you want to read more about him which can be accessed on this link:
