Iím an author and illustrator of books for children:

picture books, board books, chapter books,
book jackets, posters and educational materials,
just about any project designed for children.

I also like to travel to schools and conferences and talk about making books for children.

For the last almost twenty years,
Iíve been illustrating Michael Bondís wonderful PADDINGTON BEAR books.

And, recently, Iíve collaborated with my wife, the lovely author ZoŽ B. Alley,
to illustrate her two marvelous, gigantic, comic/​graphic picture books:
THEREíS A WOLF AT THE DOOR and
THEREíS A PRINCESS IN THE PALACE.

I canít think of a better job!
