SF Said’s first book, Varjak Paw, won the Nestlé Smarties Prize for Children’s Literature, and was recently listed by BookTrust as one of the 100 best children’s books of the past 100 years.  The sequel, The Outlaw Varjak Paw, won the BBC Blue Peter Book Of The Year.  His third book, Phoenix, was chosen to represent the UK on the IBBY International Honour Book List, and shortlisted for the Guardian Children’s Fiction Award.  He has described his new book Tyger as his best book yet; it will be published in October 2022 by David Fickling Books, illustrated by Dave McKean, like his other books.  SF Said is a passionate campaigner for literacy, libraries and reading for pleasure.  More information can be found on his website (http://www.sfsaid.com) and Twitter feed (@whatSFSaid).
