Chris Haughton and Goodnight Everyone win at CBI Awards

We're very pleased to report that Chris Haughton has been announced as the winner of the Children’s Books Ireland Book of the Year Award for Goodnight Everyone, and was also the recipient of the Honour Award for Illustration for the same title.

The award judges praised ‘Chris Haughton’s vibrant illustrations combine perfectly with deceptively simple narrative in this mesmerising bedtime tale. Chronicling a series of animal yawns, the colour palette gradually darkens as the world of the forest is painted in sunset. Haughton’s use of cut-outs is particularly effective and the star maps in the endpapers add a mystic dimension to this captivating story.’

           

You can can find all of Chris' excellent picture books at your local bookshop. Goodnight Everyone will be out in paperback in August 2017.
