A ball for Cinderella

There were to be no pumpkins at midnight with the glittering evening reception of Niamh Sharkey's exhibition for her new book Cinderella.

A livley evening was had by all with a tremendous turnout of well-wishers, fans, supporters, family and publishers. Author Max Eilenberg was in attendance, and publisher David Lloyd of Walker Books said a few well-spoken words in praise of this talented illustrator which echoed the thoughts of everyone present.

Last seen heading for a buzzing Mayfair cocktail venue with family and friends we look forward to Niamh's return to the gallery on Saturday for her workshop and book signing. Needless to say she left her slipper on the stairs ...

We had a ball! Thanks for hosting this beautiful exhibition. It was worth waiting 10 years to meet Niamh and see her illustrations up close.

Max's retelling of Cinderella is wickedly funny and enchanting with a clever twist at the end, I'd never read before.

Oh and I think it was my slipper on the stairs :)

I have your slipper here.
