Love may feel proud like a peacock, on display for the world to see . . . But it may also sing a softer song that goes unheard to those who are not listening. There are many ways that we can feel and give love.

Told through a collection of beautiful animal similes, Love Is... looks at love in all its beauty. Sublime illustrations explore themes such as self-love, a parent's love for a new baby, the bond between siblings, friendship, fighting for what you believe in and missing someone who's no longer there.

Following on from Sarah Maycock's Sometimes I Feel..., this mini gift perfectly captures the many facets of love in just a few swoops of ink.

Author Biography

Lily Murray grew up in the wilds of snowy nowhere, spending much of her time talking to animals and making up stories. She has continued to do this in her adult life, and now writes both fiction and non-fiction books for children. Her titles for Big Picture Press include Dinosaurium, Beneath the Waves, Small Worlds: Water and There are Bugs Everywhere.

Sarah Maycock studied Illustration at Kingston University and in 2011 was selected as an It's Nice That Graduate. Notably, in 2018, she was commissioned to create a series of illustrations for London Natural History Museum's 2018 Whales exhibition. She trained herself to draw animals from nature documentaries. Her unique ability to capture a creature's characteristics or the forces of nature in just a few swoops of ink is incomparable and truly impressive. Sarah's book Sometimes I Feel... won the ALCS Educational Writers' Award in 2021. Sarah lives in Hastings, UK.
