Favourite Illustrator #4 Helen Oxenbury

Helen Oxenbury has been around forever. Her work is gorgeous. I really admired her watercolours and the energy and life she brings to her childrens illustration. She did ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ and ‘Farmer Duck’ which are our particular favourites. She works in different mediums but I admire and appreciate her watercolour work most. Here’s a page from our copy of ‘Farmer Duck’. The depiction of moonlight is just beautiful.

    We:ve just discovered Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox and Helen Oxenbury, and are smitten by the wonderful text, and especially, the illustrations. I:ll look for more Oxenbury illustrated books…..this book is a gem.
