Reviews

Children's Buyers Guide: Autumn Books 14th July 2006 Tamara Linke

; Templar have produced a brilliantly engaging way to draw children into the conventions of non-fiction books. Accessible information and instructions are combined with huge amounts of fun in an area of endless speculation. And with Bartram's wonderfully under stated humour.

Simon Bartram is one of the most talented picture book illustrators and authors working today.

He graduated from Birmingham Polytechnic with a  first class degree in illustration in 1990, and his art style is heavily in uenced by artists such as Peter Blake, Stanley Spencer and Reg Cartwright. Simon has been shortlisted for several major illustration awards including The Mother Goose in 1999 and the Kate Greenaway Award twice.

This is what the Art Director at Templar, his publisher, has said about him:

'Simon is wonderfully bonkers, and as British as a mini pork pie. he is a unique voice in children's publishing and his books have a refreshingly 'real' heart and natural character. He's one of the best British illustrators in the universe!'

Simon is a mad keen football fan and supporter of Sunderland. He lives in
Newcastle with his wife Nicola and their son. Simon’s other books for Templar include: Pumpkin Moon, A Winter’s Tale, Dougal’s Deep-Sea Diary, The Alien Spotters Guide and Watch Out for Sprouts.
