An outstanding gift book, detailing the life and work of this most significant author/illustrator
John Burningham opens with a foreword by Maurice Sendak, before John himself goes on to explore his childhood, his schooling, his beginnings as an illustrator designing posters for London Transport, and then his hugely successful and still-ongoing thirty-five-year career as a picture book author and illustrator. We see notes for his first picture book, Borka, sketches, and colour illustrations from his backlist of over forty books, providing new insights into his work. This is an ideal gift for Burningham fans, and also anyone interested in illustration and children’s books.

John Burningham is twice-winner of the Kate Greenaway Award and is one of the best-loved children’s authors/illustrators.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 20090530 "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 20090701 "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 20091101
