Review:

"Burningham is admired as a fearless original whose wit and sense of fun should be a part of every infancy. Burningham's books work not only because of their witty line and strong sense of atmosphere but also because he has perfect recall of a child's sense of boundless possibility. Jonathan Cape's appreciation of Burningham's work will be appreciated in its turn by adults." (Amanda Craig The Times)

"John Burningham's books always hit the mark. He's a fabulously funny and inventive illustrator who also writes well; quite a rare combination. This lovely book is a retrospective of his work ..." (Matthew Perren I-On Glasgow)

"All in all this is a beautiful and informative book, essential for picture book enthusiasts and useful as a reference work for design studies." (The School Librarian)

Book Description:

An outstanding gift book detailing the life and work of one of our most significant author-illustrators, packed with beautiful colour illustrations.
