Vietnam based artist, Hoang Giang, works with Little Tiger Press on 'The Christmas Department Store'

Released early November 2021 was ‘The Christmas Department Store’, a beautiful picture book by Maudie Powell-Tuck and illustrated by Hoang Giang.

Hoang Giang has been working as a children’s book illustrator for over ten years, producing work in her studio, in Vietnam, along with her partner and three cats. She loves comic books and graphic novels and dreams of one day creating her own comic book.

The story depicts the power of magic at Christmas , reminding us all of the joy Christmas holds when surrounded by friends and family. It prompts the reader to see value in quality time rather than in gifts received. Hoang Giang brings this magic to life with her vibrant, charming illustrations full of emotion. Each and every drawing is bursting with colour and excitement , perfect for getting into the Christmas spirit! You will be engulfed, heart and soul, in the wonder and magic of Christmas after reading this beautiful festive book.

An Interview with Hoang Giang is available on the reading zone website along with a super video helping you create your own polar bear just like the one in the book.

It can be purchased from a variety of shops including Waterstones.
