Clara would draw on every surface she could find whilst growing up in the Seychelles. She has always had a fond love for animals and creating characters with subtle gentle humour. Using a mixture of traditional techniques, ranging from monoprinting to pencil marks, Clara enjoys creating narrative images and a sense of place in limited colour palettes. After studying BA illustration at Falmouth University, she went on to complete a MA Children's Illustration course at Anglia Ruskin, which helped her gain personal voice, inspiration and motivation.
From an award-winning author, who knows how important friends can be through his own fight with cancer, and at a time when so many families have faced loss and grief, this is a perfectly pitched description of exactly what empathy means in real life. Even very small children will be able to find and recognise the situations and feelings so well described and captivatingly illustrated. They will know how they feel sad sometimes about such things as a broken toy or a dropped ice cream and know what helps them feel better. What it also captures so beautifully is that every single person is unique and no one thing will work for everyone. In very practical terms there are heartfelt suggestions here of things and suggestions that can and do and obviously have helped. There is an unmistakeable authenticity to the carefully crafted words which are the very opposite of sentimental verse in a greetings card.
A joyful and empowering picture book about trying your best and being yourself from the creators of How to Mend a Friend. Who will I be? What will happen? Where will I go? and Why?

The important thing is to try your best and be yourself. Karl Newson's lyrical new picture book is the Oh, The Places for You'll Go! for the new generation.
