He is currently illustrating the eagerly awaited third title in the series, The Big Book of the Blue, which will publish in May 2018.

Yuval’s characterful canine adventure picture books One Hundred Bones and One Hundred Sausages are published by Templar. He has also illustrated The Street Beneath My Feet (Quarto), an exciting foldout book exploring our underground worlds.
