Frank Cottrell Boyce tells the Guardian this morning that writing a children's book was his greatest ambition.
It's interesting that this year both Boyce and Riddell (the winner of the Kate Greenaway award for illustration) were succesful writers/illustrators in completely different fields--Boyce as a screenwriter and Riddell as a political cartoonist.
Here's a link to Chris Riddell's political cartoons.
Boyce is also nominated for the new Quills Awards (thanks to Anastasia Suen at Create/Relate for the link). It will be interesting to see how these awards work. Consumers will be voting--either online or at Borders--for one of five finalists in each of nineteen categories!
