Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

Yasmeen Ismail

Yasmeen Ismail is an Irish author and illustrator, living in Bristol. She never imagined that she would be so fortunate to work in children’s publishing and thanks her lucky stars every day. She enjoys working with pens, pencils and watercolours, and many other mediums besides. When she is not drawing in her studio she is drawing at the kitchen table with her son. Her hands can get sore by the end of the day, but it’s a price worth paying.

She spends her most days making books, petting the cat, looking out the window and thinking of the next idea. 

Yasmeen’s latest book, ‘Would You Like a Banana?’, is published by Walker Books and available everywhere. You can check your library too. Please read it in a funny voice if you can. That would be most appreciated!

Watch out for Yasmeen’s video on 2nd November – ‘A World Full of Wonder’
