Providing the illustrations for Brand’s words is Chris Riddell, who’s best known for his work alongside Paul Stewart on the Edge Chronicles. Riddell is also the political cartoonist for The Observer newspaper and provides ‘Illustration to Unwritten Books’ for the Literary Review magazine. For his work he has won two Kate Greenaway Medals, the annual award for the best-illustrated children's book from the British Librarians collective (CILIP).

Russell BrandWill Russell Brand's writing work for children?

It will be interesting to see how Brand’s foray into children’s writing plays out. His two autobiographies have achieved success and Brand has developed his own unique writing voice, which is coincidently the same as his actual voice. The fact that he’s promising a reimagining of classic fairy tales leads us to expect something along the lines of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes albeit with Brand’s own flair for language. One thing we can agree with Brand on is the importance of fairy tales for children, whilst they might be having a big screen renaissance, seeing them back on book shelves is certainly a good idea as well.
