Harry Woodgate (they/them) is a multi-award-winning author and illustrator, whose debut picture book Grandad’s Camper won the British Book Awards Nibbie for Children's Illustrated Book of the Year and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, was shortlisted for the Polari Prize, and named as an ALA Stonewall Honor Book. It was inspired by their university dissertation, which revealed a lack of representation for older LGBTQIA+ characters in children’s books. Their work has also been shortlisted for the V&A Illustration Awards, and the Folio Society Book Illustration Competition twice.
When they’re not creating amazing books, they love writing music, cycling, baking, and exploring independent coffee shops and bookstores.

The highly-anticipated sequel to Waterstones Prize-winning Grandad's Camper celebrates the power of community and the importance of LGBTQIA+ history.
Milly can't wait to spend a summer at Grandad's cottage by the sea, and is even more excited when she discovers Grandad and Gramps’ Pride flag in the attic. Grandad insists he's too old to go to the London celebrations, especially now Gramps isn’t around any more, but Milly has an idea to get the local community together and bring Pride to Grandad . . .
