Jarvis Is Speaking At CBI’s Conference, We Are Thrilled!

Jarvis, the award-winning creator of Alan’s Big, Scary Teeth, is coming to Children’s Books Ireland’s conference, Belonging, this September.

Jarvis has shown himself to be an immensely talented illustrator and author, dedicated to creating bizarre and fun stories that are perfect for getting young children engaged with reading. From Alan’s Big, Scary Teeth (for which he won 2017 V&A Best Illustrated Book Award) which details the story of a fearsome alligator with false teeth to Mrs Mole, I’m Home, the story of a Mole whose lost his glasses and gotten lost, Jarvis has demonstrated a unique voice that is bursting with humour and excitement.

Something that continues to be true with his most recent books Mary Had a Little Lamb and This Little Piggy: A Counting Book, which breathe new life into these well-known stories for a whole new generation of small readers. We are particularly excited about This Little Piggy: A Counting Book, as Jarvis has graciously allowed us to use his wonderful art work for promoting our conference, making this year’s poster and flyer extremely fun.

We can’t wait to hear what this truly unique artist has to say during his talk at our conference this year, and know that he is not to be missed. Book your tickets now!
