Silkscreen printing, collage and painting, along with a strong discipline of pen and pencil drawing, all play a part in creating Debbie’s imagery.

Debbie has worked for an array of clients, including Carluccio's, Jamie Oliver, Marks & Spencer, Tesco, The Guardian, The Independent and The Natural History Museum. She has also illustrated many books, such as Make It Grow, 101 Classic Cookbooks, Shiny Touch Trucks, Shiny Touch Animals and Walk this World at Christmas Time. Debbie is based in Dorset, UK.
With the Easter holidays on the horizon, this is a particularly attractive and appealing activity book. Children will find over 100 different things to do, including drawing and colouring in, word games and look and find, as well as some simple craft activities. All of the activities are themed on the UK countryside and wildlife so while having fun, readers will also learn about the animals, plants and insects around us, and even the sky above our heads, and will feel inspired to go out and see things for themselves. The illustrations by Debbie Powell are stylish and eye-catching while the text is engaging and direct. Interactive, educational and lots of fun too.
This unusual interactive picture book is full of interesting lessons on the natural world for very young children. Each spread features a different natural habitat, from the back garden to the mountain top via meadows and deserts. Four lines of rhyming text set each scene and issue a challenge, then it’s up to the reader to lift the large die-cut flaps and see what’s growing underneath. The illustrations are mostly in muted mono-colours, but the stylised plants, berries and insects underneath the flaps are represented in vibrant colour. This will be very satisfying for young children, and is a visual feast for grown-ups too. ~ Andrea Reece
