Ten Stories to Make a Difference

A very special collection of new illustrated stories and poems by children’s writers and illustrators to support Pop Up’s vital work in schools, communities and with talented writers and illustrators.

Ten Stories is our first commercial publishing venture – ten brand new illustrated children’s stories, all inspired by the theme of ‘difference’. Each story will be a collaboration between an established writer or illustrator and an emerging writer or illustrator, giving platforms to bold new voices.

These emerging voices – new writers and illustrators – were discovered through various Pop Up projects (Rising Stars, An International Illustration Exchange, The Rainbow Library) as well as through our first ever international children’s writing competition. Famous authors contributing to the collection include writers Jamila Gavin, Marcus Sedgwick, Laura Dockrill and Philip Ardargh, and illustrators Chris Riddell, David Roberts and Alexis Deacon.
