Harry Woodgate

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.
