James Mayhew was born in Stamford, England and graduated from the Maidstone College of Art in 1987, with first class honors. He is a prolific and renowned illustrator who hopes to peak young children’s interest in music and art. He is enthusiastic about his subjects and this passion is apparent in his work.
Mayhew’s first children’s book was Katie’s Picture Show. He developed this subject into a successful children’s series about a young museumgoer who is able to step into paintings and learn about the artists and their eras. Other titles in this series are Katie and Mona Lisa, Katie and the Sunflowers, and Katie Meets the Impressionists. His other books include The Secret Garden, which Kirkus Reviews called a breathtaking masterful homage.” He has also illustrated titles for several writers including Elisabeth Beresford and Joyce Dunbar.
In 1994, Mayhew received the New York Times Book Award for his illustrations in The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams. He has sold his artwork worldwide and exhibited it throughout Hertfordshire, in London, Cambridge, Paris and New York.
PreSchool-Grade 1–A lost baby dragon searches through a castle for someone to love him. However, everyone he meets–a witch, a knight, a princess, a king and queen, and a fairy–runs away in fear. The exuberant illustrations show the rosy-pink, polka-dotted creature frowning as he is rejected again and again. Finally, his mother appears to "cuddle him, and kiss him, and help him sleep tight." The rhyming text is soothingly predictable and the repeated refrain of "Who wants a dragon?" will help young listeners focus on the story. Large illustrations in soft, almost luminescent pastels match the fairy-tale tone of the narrative. Especially charming is the wide toothy smile of the huge mother dragon as she nestles her tiny son close to her, against the background of an azure sky lit with twinkling stars.–James K.
