is by Paul Galdone for "Anatole and the Cat" by Eve Titus (1957). A delicious addition to the series about a bicycling, cheese-testing mouse, rendered in patriotic French-flag colours. Here's the whole adorable family at breakfast.

is by Margaret Bloy Graham for "Harry by the Sea" by Gene Zion (1965). Who can resist Harry? Here's an idyllic scene by the seaside with Harry and family - of course disaster isn't far away. Lovely limited palette, and breezy line. A Vintage classic.

is by Harvey Weiss for "The Big Clean Up" (1967). An adored book from my childhood, little known today. A boy tidies his room, discovering every piece of trash is useful. Here a cotton spool inspires a wheel chair for his injured dog, Maurice! Ingenious!

is by Dave Barrow for "Fergus Barnby goes on Holiday" (2017). Charming book about a bear family, illustrated with richly realised scenes & glowing colours. Love this vignette of them setting off. If you're on holiday, I hope you've remembered everything!

is by Chris Appelhans for "Sparky!" by Jenny Offill (2014). After another night of insomnia, this is my current status, hence late post. Lovely, gentle, warm, and funny Illustrations, with fresh simplicity and deft stroke of the brush. Very expressive.

is by Charles Keeping for "Joseph's Yard" (1969). Astonishing, visceral, colour & emotional textures in this story of an ordinary boy who smothers a plant to keep wildlife from it, but in so doing kills it. Yet hope is always there, and next year...

is by Molly Brett for "Goodnight Time Tales" (1982). Ah, a day by the Sea. Perfect. This must have seemed at odds with anything else published in 1982, yet however twee, it is undeniably charming. A kind of perpetual 1940s childhood holiday nostalgia...
