JOHN SHELLEY was born in Birmingham and studied Art, then illustration, under children's illustrator Tony Ross. He began working as a freelance illustrator in London, and co-founded the artist's collective Facade Studios. In 1987 he moved to Tokyo, making it his home for the next 21 years. His first major picture book was The Secret in the Matchbox (1989 Mother Goose Award runner-up). His illustrations have been published in the UK, USA, Europe, Japan and the Far East. His own stories include Hoppy’s New House and The House of the World. Now based in Staffordshire, Shelley has run events on children's illustration around the world.
Book Band: Lime Ideal for ages 6+ | Dylan dreams that he’s living in a jam jar, cut off from his family, in a silent world. In fact, he’s losing his hearing and that brings all sorts of issues. He doesn’t like how loud the world is with his hearing aids in, doesn’t like the way the others in his class treat him differently now; and he feels that without sound to anchor him he’s somehow floating away. It takes a hair-raising experience, and the quick-thinking and love of his dog Pluto to bring him back down to earth. In the new Bloomsbury Readers series, this story is written specifically for children just growing reading confidence and understanding, with short chapters and illustrations on every page. Nonetheless, the story is subtle and moving, with lots to prompt discussion and reflection. There are questions to share with children at the end to help them get the most from the story.
