Jon Lander will be showing two new picture books at Bologna this year. The first is called Fallen Star. It is the magical story of a girl who doesn’t want to leave her home and finds help from a very unusual visitor. The second is a flap-book called 10 Silly Children, a very silly introduction to counting for young children.
Jon Lander is obsessed with illustrating and writing for children. He loves working with children in schools all over the world (currently in Spain), and is always thinking hard about what makes them tick and what makes them laugh. He has many years experience as a professional illustrator including illustrating the book Yoga for Travellers, which has now been translated into 2 languages.
