Good episode? Give it some love!
This week we are in glorious North London to meet picture book illustrator and kids book powerhouse Nadia Shireen! Nadia is the creator of the Billy book series and blockbusters such as The Bumblebear and The Cow Who Fell To Earth. She is also an ex-Smash Hits staffer - which may be mentioned in the course of the episode. We also talked to her about reading guilt, sort of stalking Paul Auster and the Pet Shop Boys.
