Nosy Crow appoints Bolongaro
13.09.12 | Charlotte Williams
Nosy Crow has appointed Louise Bolongaro as its head of picture books, with Bolongaro moving from her post as editorial director at Puffin Picture Books.
Bolongaro will join the digital specialist children's publisher on 5th November, having worked at Puffin since 2004. She has also worked at Egmont Books, Campbell Books and Macmillan.
Nosy Crow m.d. Kate Wilson said: "Louise combines great visual sense with a really rigorous, sleeves-rolled-up approach to editing . . . I'm very much looking forward to working with her again, and it's great to be able to attract someone of her calibre and with her range and depth of experience to the growing Nosy Crow team."
Bolongaro said: "I have long admired the Nosy Crow list—I've been watching the company from the beginning—and I am thrilled to be joining its exciting and innovative team, several of whom I know from my previous role at Macmillan, and to working with Nosy Crow's talented group of illustrators.
"Nosy Crow really buzzes with creative energy and I can't wait to help shape the list."
