David Mackintosh to publish two picture books

27th January 2010

The rights to two new picture books from designer and illustrator David Mackintosh have been acquired by HarperCollins Publishers.

Mackintosh, whose previous work includes Same as Me and the illustrations for Wendy Orr's Paradise Palace, will release the first title - Marshall Armstrong is New to Our School - in March 2011.

Kate Burns, deputy publisher of children's books at HarperCollins, said she is 'absolutely delighted' to have signed the illustrator and described him as a 'witty, insightful and original author'.

'David is well known in the children's book world as a designer par excellence so I knew his own work would be a visual feast,' she commented.

Ms Burns added that Marshall Armstrong is New to Our School will deal with themes familiar to most young people and predicted it will introduce a new character which has the potential to become a contemporary classic.

Other works which Mackintosh has illustrated include Sharon Keep Your Hair On by Gillian Rubinstein and Ursula Dubosarsky's Rex.
