Enquiry to End Sample - Claire McElfatrick: "The Magic and Mystery of Trees" Jan 16 2019

Samples and spotted

It’s the start of a brand new year and we are already kicking off with the completion of a project by one of our incredible artists, Claire McElfatrick. We were able to speak to her about her process of starting this book as an idea, to seeing it finalised on the page.

The Magic and Mystery of Trees
is published by DK in association with The Royal Horticultural Society. It was illustrated by Claire and written by Jen Green and is set to be launched in Spring 2019, receiving 5 star reviews on Amazon already!

When we asked Claire how she felt about being involved in project already getting rave reviews, Claire couldn’t be more excited stating:

Illustrating this book has been a pure pleasure! I have thoroughly enjoyed collaging my illustrations with some beautiful photography and natural textures to help children visualise the magical world of trees and all the amazing facts about them. Whenever we went out for walks I would constantly feed my children all the newfound tree knowledge whilst studying all the interesting shapes and textures they have!

All of the agents at Advocate couldn’t be more proud!

This book is a brightly illustrated children's book which explores the wonderful natural science of trees and has served as wonderful way to educate children! Claire's contemporary, mixed media style and vibrant colours have truly brought this book to life! For a sneak of the book, enjoy scrolling the images above, but if you would like to see more work by Claire, just click through to her online Advocate portfolio. Now that Claire has wrapped up another wonderful project, she is up for a new challenge.
