World Book Day 2021
This World Book Day we are excited to introduce you to Susie Shaw, the illustrator behind our upcoming children’s book: Jeannie’s Adventure to the Countryside.
‘Hello, I am Susie Shaw, a graphic designer and illustrator based in Hillsborough. I love mixing collage and watercolours to bring characters to life and tell a story through pictures. I am currently working with the Northern Ireland War Memorial to bring to life a story of evacuation during the war; Jeannie the Hen’s big adventure to the countryside! It is such an exciting project and I love how this can potentially open up conversations about this era and our history in Northern Ireland.’
The illustrated book will be freely available later in the year and is suitable for under 5s. Find out more on our website: http://www.niwarmemorial.org/early-years/.
