Favourite Illustrator #7 (…I think) Simon James

The girls and I were reading one of our old favourites ‘Dear Greenpeace’ by Simon James last night and it reminded me of this fabulous illustrator and writer. Of course, what makes him extra special is that he’s from Devon.  Perhaps this is what gave him his delightful quirkiness and wit. His illustrations are free and loose and full of colour and life. The concepts of his books are just a bit different. My kids just absolutly adore the  ‘Baby Brains’ books and they are some of the funniest children’s books I’ve ever come across. ‘Dear Greenpeace’ is an exchange of letters between a little girl and Greenpeace. It expresses the innocense and imagination of childhood just beautifully.
