Marianne, coming to the festival specially from Quebec, is the Children’s Bookshow’s special guest this year. Her stories have shown a far-reaching appeal, having been translated into more than 20 languages. Marianne won the Governor General Award for outstanding illustrations for The Lion and the Bird, which movingly explored loneliness, especially through the usage of space in drawings. She is translated into English by Sarah Ardizzone.
