Join Yasmeen Ismail for a special reading of her wonderful I’m a Girl!, a charming and funny story that reminds us that it doesn’t matter whether you’re a boy or a girl, it is being yourself that’s important. In Nothing, little Lila is always up to something curious, yet when asked what she’s doing, all she can say is ‘Nothing’. Lila’s imagination takes her to all sorts of wonderful places- if only someone will join her.

Irish-born, Bristol-based Yasmeen Ismail is an award-winning author, illustrator and animator. Yasmeen studied at art school in her home town, Dublin. After graduating, Yasmeen moved to London where she worked on many different projects ranging from advertising and short films to children's publishing. 

After moving to London and running a successful animation production company and having worked in varying capacities within it, Yasmeen found herself writing and illustrating picture books. From her experience with scripts and storyboards she is familiar with writing narratives and working with story lines, and is especially acquainted with editing her work and writing creatively within boundaries. In turn, and as a result of her animating background, her illustrations are bright, fluid and full of energy and movement. She has a love of watercolours, inks and paints and is moving to all sorts of other mediums. 

She now lives in Bristol with her husband, their toddler and Betty the cat.
