Note: these are the last contributions to Picture Book Report’s Short Reports series. Hopefully I didn’t omit any in searching through my emails! While I’m condensing them into one post, they’re all great work and you ought to take a peek at the talented illustrators’ websites for more. Thank you again contributors!
Hansel and Gretel
There is some information about her on the excellent Picture Book Report site, which is where I first found her work. She is illustrating Brave New World. Here is a link to her one-shot Short Report, which was turned into a continuing series of illos. You can follow the links once you’re there.

The Never Ending Story is the first book I can remember taking from the library. It was a Wednesday, and school had ended at noon. I spent the entire afternoon reading and finished it just before dinner. It was years later before I reread it, but I still vividly remembered whole portions. So when given the opportunity to join Picture Book Report it seemed a natural choice (though still a hard choice, there are so many books I would have loved to illustrate). Michael Ende’s imagination is so strange and colourful that it’s a real gift to illustrate, and the book just seems like one of those stories that seems to have always been there. I could go on and on about it, but you should really just read it if you haven’t already!
