It goes without saying that we had a truly wonderful and enchanting time when Catherine Hyde visited Number Seven. Thank you to those of you that were able to join us and took delight in being able to peek into the pages of her sketch books, watch her paint and chat to her about her inspiration and the experience of bringing The Star Tree to life.
Do enjoy these images that capture the afternoon perfectly...
The day before she arrived Catherine was elated to hear that The Star Tree had been nominated for THE 2017 CILIP KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL for outstanding illustration - which she values 'as an incredible endorsement.'
Signed copies of The Star Tree are available to buy from Number Seven, alongside copies of Catherine's other titles: Firebird, The Princess' Blankets and Little Evie in the Wild Wood which have also been signed by Jackie Morris.
If you have the opportunity to visit Number Seven you will also find a selection of original studies for The Star Tree for sale, as well as Catherine's prints, cards and postcards.
The Star Tree is a perfect lullaby gift for you to share with your little ones.
