Hog in the Fog: A Harry & Lil Story by Julia Copus - told in fizzingly original rhymes from a rising star in the poetry world - is the first brand-new picture book on the Faber Children's list.
Julia Copus was born in London, near to the Young Vic theatre, and now lives in Somerset. She has won First Prize in the National Poetry Competition and the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem (2010). She also writes for radio; her first play, Eenie Meenie Macka Racka, was awarded the BBC's Alfred Bradley prize. She is a Lector for the Royal Literary Fund, and in 2008 was made an Honorary Fellow at the University of Exeter. Harry Lil is her debut picture book.
