Our visiting illustrator for this year`s Book Week is Korky Paul, who has illustrated the Winnie the Witch series which won the Children`s Book Award and has been published in over 10 languages. Korky has since illustrated more very successful books for Oxford, Random House, Penguin and many other publishers.

He was born in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1951 into a family of seven children. He enjoyed a wild and priviliged childhood in Africa.

In 1976, as Korky puts it, he „fled for Europehe”  landed up in Greece and began his career as a children`s book illustrator.

Korky Paul has very quickly become a well-known figure in the children`s book world and he is especially popular with the young children who read his books and are carried away into a fantasy world by the illusstrations.

He is married to the artist Susan Moxley and they have two children Zoe and Oska. They  live in Oxford, Britain.
