Specialist in children's books and media. Her work ranges from picture books, middle grade fiction and commercial series to ground-breaking illustrated books and innovative non-fiction. She is looking for new and diverse talent. Philippa is open to submissions and says: 'In fiction, I am always looking for new and different voices and for exciting storytelling in both words and pictures – and always searching for those children’s books that will be the classics of the future. In factual, I'd like to see work that is both ground-breaking in its perspectives as well as entertaining and accessible for a children's audience.'
