Alumni: Helen Hancocks

Helen graduated in 2011 from the course and developed her career over the next two years working on her first picture book ‘Penguin in Peril’ published 2013. It was the UK’s best selling debut picture book that year and has gone on to been nominated for a host of awards.

This was followed up by the equally successful ‘William and the Missing Masterpiece’ and the very recent ‘William Heads to Hollywood’.
