William Grill

William Grill is an illustrator, who draws most of his inspiration from the natural world and enjoys working with coloured pencils and occasionally print processes like lino and lithography. His first book Shackleton’s Journey won the 2015 Kate Greenaway award and has been translated into over 14 languages, his second book The Wolves of Currumpaw won the 2016 Bologna Ragazzi prize for non-fiction and was recently chosen as one of the Book Trust’s 100 best children’s books of the last 100 years. When away from his pens, William enjoys teaching, from primary schools to universities. His latest book Bandoola – The Great Elephant Rescue is to be published this October.
