Mr. Fox

So, here he is:

foxy

Here's all the blurb on the London Book Fair website with the other winning entries. The competition was judged by Chris Riddell and Bruce Ingman, both author/illustrators; and Deirdre McDermott, picture book publisher at Walker Books. Apparently, there were over 50 entries but only ten winners. Woo! I get to go up to the fair on 20th April for a big schmooze and have my photo taken with the other winners. I've just ordered a shed load of Mr. Fox postcards, so I'll be handing those out left, right and centre to everyone in arms reach, if I haven't died of fright and started whimpering in the corner, that is!
