A treat! Not to be missed...
Joanna Carey profiles Sara Fanelli.

With nine books so far, Fanelli's originality has brought a breath of fresh air to the world of picture books. Even in her first book, Button (1994), it was clear that her work doesn't have its roots in the British traditions that have shaped so many of our finest illustrators. With an off-beat humour and an inventive approach to everything from page design and typography to choice of materials, she has the kind of vision you might associate with illustrators such as the Czech Kveta Pacovska or Wolf Erlbruch in Germany, or the American Lane Smith (of Stinky Cheese Man fame).
