Hey You! has been nominated for the British Book Award for Book of the Year – Children’s Illustrated Category!

CONGRATULATIONS goes out to the inspirational pioneer/ creative Dapo Adeola (the Author and Illustrator), and all the clever folk at Puffin Books UK!

This groundbreaking picture book is a lyrical, inspirational exploration of growing up Black. This book showcases artwork from Dapo and 18 incredible Black illustrators in one beautiful, powerful, and cohesive reading experience.

Included in this book was the work of the super talented Chanté Timothy,   Joelle Avelino,  and Dunni Mustapha 

The British Book Awards (aka The Nibbies) are administered by the industry-leading trade magazine The Bookseller and these awards represent the absolute best of the book trade.

To be shortlisted for a British Book Award is an INCREDIBLE achievement as only a handful of books are selected in each category every year.

Well done to everyone involved it’s a fantastic achievement.
