Bright USA Goes to The Original Art Show!
“Judging The Original Art was challenging, not only because of the volume and quantity of the submissions, but also because I know how much talent, skill, exuberant creativity and painstaking work goes into making each book.”
-DAVID SAYLOR, juror

David Litchfield: The Bear and the Piano, Clarion/HMH US | Frances Lincoln UK (April 5, 2016) Jarvis: Fred Forgets HarperCollins (June 7, 2016) Yasmeen Ismail: Specs for Rex, Bloomsbury USA Childrens (November 3, 2015) Benji Davies: Also an Octopus, Candlewick (October 4, 2016) Benji Davies: I Love You Already!
