My 2 year olds obsession with the moon led me to remember one of my all time favourite illustrations. It gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling every time you see it....Barbara Firth's beautiful illustrations in Can't You Sleep Little Bear. 🐻♥️

If I had to choose just one illustration, would be this Mervyn Peake, who had the gift of being both artist & poet. And how it shows. This pic combines elements I love - music, cats & humour, & illustrates one of his own classic nonsense rhymes.

I couldn’t choose just one, and I haven’t seen the wonderful Graham Oakley mentioned yet. Here are the Church Mice and Sampson the cat protesting at my delay, from The Church Mice At Bay.

I love John Burningham's work for its bold and beautiful colour, but this one is a masterpiece for its composition. From John Burningham's book: Cannonball Simp.

Happy , ! One of my favourite picture books is a strange little edition of the Grimms fairy tale "The Robber Bridegroom," illustrated by H.J. Owen in 1922. For some reason, the characters are Japanese rats. It's delightful.
