Brief Requirements:

Key Brief Ideas: Jill and Lion' is a picture book for children (big and small) from about 5 years old and upwards. It is a sequel to the story 'Jill and Dragon' (also published by Tate in 2015) I wanted to develop the idea (introduced in ‘Jill and Dragon’) of creating 'a book within a book', where children could experience the magical relationship between a reader and the storybook itself. This time, the pages of Jill's book create the landscape that the characters navigate through – creating tunnels, mountains and valleys from the page folds. Jill shows girls (and boys) that you never have to be satisfied with the story you are given.
