The Ickabog is published today, complete with STUNNING pictures created by young illustrators around the world! I’m donating my royalties to my charitable Trust, Volant, to help medical and frontline charities support vulnerable groups impacted by Covid-19.
One day to go until The Ickabog is published!
We just love the reactions of the @Scholastic and @HachetteKids Ickabog illustration competition winners seeing their illustrations in print for the very first time!
We couldn't have done it without you! You're all AMAZING!
Which words first appeared in print the year you were born?
Time travel with us:
Beta-blocker, Black Panther, midlife crisis, pseudosophistication, lava lamp, S & M.
“Shoot, a man could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.”
Just received my first published copy of #TheIckabog! The winners’ illustrations bring the story alive even more beautifully than I’d imagined. Thank you to EVERYONE who sent in pictures. You reminded me just how much I love writing for young people. 💚🍄 1/2
The actress Frances Barber and the playwright Tom Stoppard are two of the 58 signatories to a letter which says that JK Rowling is a victim of “an insidious, authoritarian and misogynistic trend in social media”
My weekend was heavy (in the very best sense!) on family and light on reading the news, so I only realised this morning that this letter appeared in the Sunday Times yesterday. I'm profoundly grateful to all the signatories, not only on a personal level, 1/3
@vidhyarajesh @TheIckabog @jk_rowling Hi there, The Ickabog UK Edition will include winners from the UK, Republic of India, Australia, New Zealand and India. The US Edition will include winners from the US & Canada. For more information, please visit
The answer to a frequently asked question on my timeline: which country's illustrations will be in which edition?
Once again, congratulations to all the children & young people whose illustrations will feature in the published books - you produced masterpieces! #TheIckabog
Since speaking up about gender identity theory, I’ve received thousands of emails – more than I’ve ever had on a single subject. Many have come from professionals working in medicine, education and social work. All are concerned about the effects on vulnerable young people. 3/4
It feels as though we’re on the brink of a medical scandal. A second paper concludes:
‘Psychiatry sits on this knife-edge: running the risk of being accused of transphobia or, alternatively, remaining silent throughout this uncontrolled experiment.’ 2/4
‘NHS identity clinics have been functioning as if acting outside the ordinary requirement of good medical and psychiatric practice.’
Some may dismiss this paper by experienced psychoanalyst @marcusevanspsych, but they do so at their own peril.
