Nara and the Island
(Hardback) - 2016
Buy from Penguin
Nara lives with her father on a tiny island and dreams of visiting the island across the waves. So when she gets the opportunity to visit the mysterious island, an amazing adventure unfolds. This stunning story is the debut of exciting author-illustrator talent Dan Ungureanu.
Dan always loved drawing. Before he went to school he was already having art lessons, so he learnt to draw before he learnt to read. He studied in his native Romania and went on to be a concept artist for animation companies and illustrated a book of poetry for children. He is a recent graduate from the prestigious MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Nara and the Island is his author-illustrator debut, for which he was a Runner-up in the V&A Illustration Award in 2015.
