Congrats to Dimity Powell on the upcoming September release of
At The End of Holyrood Lane
Illustrated by fellow SCBWI member Nicky Johnston
published by EK Books, in hardback
for ages 4 - 8.
A poignant yet uplifting book that deals with domestic violence in a way that provides understanding and offers hope to young children. Visually arresting and emotionally incisive, this story promotes hope, self-reliance and positive action.
Few picture books available today address this volatile and woefully prevalent aspect of society without overt explicitness or didactic overtones. At The End of Holyrood Lane does so in a sympathetic, non-threatening way.
Much needed - congrats again Dim and Nicky!
