Migy Blanco - Illustrator

About the Illustrator

Migy (pronounced ‘Miggy’) was born in Salford, England, he went to university in London, and then spent 10 years working in advertising and editorial illustration. After marrying, he moved to Buenos Aires. There, surrounded by the vibrancy and
colour of South America, he developed a children’s book style
that is bold, magical and eyecatching. Migy recently moved back
to the UK and, for the first time in his life, he is living outside of a megacity, enjoying nature and exploring new inspiration.

Love You Always

Author: Frances Stickley Illustrator: Migy Blanco Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/08/2019

Heartfelt and touching story about the enduring love between a parent and child. As little hedgehog Hoglet and his mummy walk home through the autumn leaves, Hoglet is puzzled and full of questions. Everything is changing around him - would his mummy love him more if HE changed too? Will her love ever change? But wise Mummy knows just how to reassure her little Hoglet that, whatever changes might come, her love will always stay the same. Life can feel overwhelming for small children when so much is changing all around them, and the beautiful, autumnal countryside scenes in this picture book convey a sense of transience and impermanence. This is perfectly balanced by a touching verse dialogue reassuring children that the love between a parent and child is unconditional and everlasting, whilst encouraging them to explore and discover, to change and grow. Written by Frances Stickley, author of What Will You Dream of Tonight and Mouse's Apples, with stylish, retro artwork from Migy Blanco, who has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
