  • Brian Wildsmith

    Brian Wildsmith was raised in a small mining village in Yorkshire, England, where, he says, Everything was grey There wasn t any colour It was all up to my imagination I had to draw in my head He won a scholarship to the Slade School of Fine Art where he studied for three years For a while he taught music at the Royal Military School of Music, but then gave it up so that he could paint full time.He has deservedly earned a reputation as one of the greatest living children s illustrators In 1962, he published his first children s book, ABC, for which he was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal, Britain s equivalent to the Caldecott Medal He was also a runner up for this medal for The Owl and the Woodpecker.Wildsmith has said I believe that beautiful picture books are vitally important in subconsciously forming a child s visual appreciation, which will bear fruit in later life In 1994, the Brian Wildsmith Art Museum was established in Izukogen, a town south of Tokyo, Japan Almost one and a half million people visited a traveling exhibition of his work in 2005 Eight hundred of his paintings are on loan to the museum.Brian is married, has four children, and currently lives in the south of France Source

  • First, I am rating this is a non Catholic so I am coming from a specific vantage point I have a lot of respect for Saint Francis of Assisi and would like to introduce my son, someday, to this historical personality This book, however, is suited to a practicing Catholic than to someone like me It is, however, beautifully illustrated by Brian Wildsmith.
