Harry Grimley

While perusing through BMV Books’ bargain section the other day, I came across the book to the left. I don’t know what caught my eye first; the book jacket’s Licorice Allsorts colour scheme or the circa 1963 hand-drawn type. I think it was both and what a match made in Good Design Heaven, if I do say so myself!

I thought for sure I’d be able to pull up a whole bunch of information on the web about its illustrator, Harry Grimley. But, disappointingly,  all I’ve been able to recover is one other book jacket example (pictured to the right).

If anyone can find more info on this allusive mid-century illustrator, mind sending me a link? In the mean time, I’ll be deciding where to hang my freshly-framed dollar bin purchase!

What do 3 cats + 2 dogs + a parrot equal? That's right: zero productivity for Ashley. My parents are coming back from their trip tomorrow and our three weeks of dog sitting are coming to an end. It's been exhausting, but they will be missed. After much rearranging, the kids from "Birthdays Around the World" have all managed to fit in one frame! 🙌

One of the many pieces I'll have on display at the Northern District Library this October. More details to follow. ✨Here's a peek inside my new book out this fall! ✨

Thanks to my editor @katie.scott2, designer Julia Naimska and author @margrietruurs for all of their hard work on this, and everyone else at @kidscanpress. Just a reminder that it's still watermelon seed spitting season! .
