Congratulations to Levi Pinfold whose stunning picture book, Black Dog, has won the prestigious CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2013.

The judges describe the book as ‘A visual treat, full of mood and atmosphere, the beautiful illustrations are full of detail and perfectly in keeping with the story … A timeless, thought-provoking book about facing up to anxiety, fears, and the black dog that visits some of us from time-to-time.’

You can see Levi interviewed by his art director Mike Jolley here on this link to Templar’s blog.

We couldn’t be happier for Levi and the continued success of Black Dog, which also won the picture books category in the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards 2013.
