* FOYLES CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE YEAR WINNER *

A whimsical modern fairy tale from internationally renowned cartoonist, Tom Gauld.


When the log princess goes missing, her brother, the little wooden robot, sets out on an epic adventure to find her. He will encounter goblins, magic puddings, a mushroom queen and a very intimidating wood pile as he seeks to bring his sister home.

The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess is an exquisitely illustrated modern fairytale about sibling love. Tom Gauld brings all of his wit, draghtsmanship and narrative craft to a funny, moving tale that proves that woodlice can be heroes too.

The New York Times review: "one of the best picture books I've read this year. It's a cabinet of curiosities in a clockwork castle... it's a funny, twisty, heartfelt yarn." -Ben Hatke

The Irish Times review: "The narrative is full of surprises [...] but it is Gauld's detailed, textured illustrations that will draw a young reader's attention back to this wonderful book again and again."

[The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess was Foyles Children's Book of the Year in 2021]
