Illustrators - it's your turn

We're also stepping up our hunt for talented illustrators to work with to bring these ideas to life.

Although we have a team of illustrators in place we're always on the look out for wonderful creative people to work with. We'll be launching our new competition for illustrators later this month.

Follow us on twitter @OhZoeBooks, or better still, sign up to the mailing list at the bottom of this page to stay in the loop and be the first to hear when the competition goes live.
