Faber to publish Jion Sheibani’s debut picture book

DKW are excited to announce that author and illustrator Jion Sheibani’s debut picture book will be published by Faber Children’s Books in September 2018.


One evening, Lily is playing on the beach. And who should float in, but LOTS of polar bears!

Lily is excited to welcome them home for dinner (of fish fingers and ice cream, of course) and to have them stay for a sleepover.

Lily has even more fun with the bears when they go swimming, ice skating, and visit the fun fair – and it soon turns out that polar bears are really quite good at a lot things, becoming polar bear postmen, opening ice cream parlours, and even becoming astronauts!

Lily and the Polar Bears is very sweet and funny story, encouraging children to be welcoming.


Jion Sheibani grew up in Brighton. She studied English at Somerville College Oxford and is a self-taught illustrator.
