Well done!

Text from Jane Oshka
Illustrations from Paola De Narvaez

Nils fell, it was Léon who pushed him. “That’s not fair!”, he said. The anger roared in his heart, so strong that a bird just pecked the villain, Léon.

“Well done!”, said Nils. He knew it – birds were on his side.

But when the whole class laughs at him, it’s real havoc that flocks of birds wreak. Nils no longer finds this funny at all, but doesn’t know how to rid himself of birds.

How could he chase them away?

Jane Oshka

Paola De Narvaez

Paola De Narvaez divides her life between Brussels, Paris and Colombia. And it is in the jungle where she found her story (true!) for her first picture book, Rugissement dans la nuit. While this book is particularly colourful, inspired by the colours of the Colombian rainforest, for her second picture book, Bien fait!, she opted for the soberness of black and white and a Japanese-inspired style.

This young French-Colombian illustrator studied in textile design at Duperré in Paris followed by graphic communication at La Cambre in Brussels. She is as adept with a brush and she is with a graphics tablet. Although working with computer technology, her technique seems to be hand-drawn in ink. She uses black in combination with pure and vibrant colours.
