Julia and the Shark


Kiran Millwood Hargrave

Kiran Millwood Hargrave and Tom de Freston met in 2009, when Kiran was a student and Tom was artist-in-residence at Cambridge University. They have been a couple and collaborators ever since, but Julia and the Shark was their first novel. It was Indie Book of the Month, Scottish Booktrust Book of the Month, and won the Waterstones Children's Gift of the Year 2021. Kiran is the award-winning, bestselling author of stories including The Girl of Ink & Stars and The Deathless Girls, and Tom worked as an acclaimed artist for many years, making his illustrative debut with Julia and the Shark, and his writing debut with Wreck (Granta, 2022). They live in Oxford with their cats Luna and Marly, in a house between a river and a forest.
