Eve Coy always loved to draw. She studied animation at Edinburgh University and became an artist working for Aardman Animation. When they lived in Bristol she would take her first daughter to the library which had a fabulous children's section, placed on shelves inside a boat. She and her daughter were frequent passengers on that boat, and as they worked their way through the shelves Eve became hooked on picture books. Eve gained an MA in Children's illustration from the prestigious Cambridge School of Art and was shortlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize for her first picture book Looking After Daddy.
Looking After William
(eBook) - 05/04/2018
Jump inside the imagination of one unforgettable "Mummy" whose charge – William – needs lots of care and attention. "Mummy" is in fact William's little girl, and William is the real parent. Children will adore following along as she turns the tables on William, but always sees his potential. When he grows up he could be an astronaut or a lion tamer or a famous chocolate maker, but his most important job is being her Dad. (And possibly being an astronaut, if she can come too.)
Longlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize 2019.
