If you'd like to know more about my new book TYGER – I've done quite a few interviews about it lately that you might enjoy.
Here's a video of an online event I did with The Blake Society, where I talked about TYGER with the brilliant bookseller and artist Tamsin Rosewell. We covered lots of topics in our conversation, especially how it was inspired by the work of William Blake, and his great poem The Tyger:
If you'd rather read something than watch a video, here's a written Q&A interview I did with the Tyger Tale blog. I think this is one of the best-named and most brilliant of all children's books blogs, and they asked me lots of great questions about TYGER, including its connections to my earlier books, like Varjak Paw. They also featured lots of Dave McKean's beautiful artwork from TYGER, such as this incredible image:
If you're looking for a longer interview, here's a really thoughtful conversation I had with the critic Imogen Russell Williams for Books For Keeps – the UK's leading children's books magazine. We talked a lot about TYGER's roots in my own life and experiences, and went into a lot of detail about the inspirations for both the story and the artwork.
And finally, if you want to read something a little different, here's an interview that takes the form of a walk through the world of TYGER, in the company of the terrific children's literature blogger Nick Campbell. This is one of the most original and interesting pieces I've seen about the book, and I hope you enjoy it too!
I am reading Tyler to my son and we are both completely captivated. It is changing how we look at the world. The illustrations are powerful and lovely.
What a wonderful and amazing thing for an author to hear - thank you so much for reading Tyger to your son, and for letting me know! Please say hello to him from me, and wish him happy reading!
