Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review The style is more assured in its minimalism than Evans' earlier illustrations for other authors' texts, while still retaining the energetic personality and quirks of expression that bring so much detail and character (especially in Ollie's face) to his work. Ollie and Augustus is highly recommended for those aged two and up. * Books and Publishing *

Author's Bio

Gabriel Evans grew up in a country town next to a river. He was always drawing on scraps of paper and building inventions from his 1920's Boy's Book of Hobbies. His dream was to be a train driver with a blue hat, a circus master with a curly moustache, or an illustrator. At the age of 17, he became a children's book illustrator, and he hasn't stopped working since. Aspects of this book were inspired by Gabriel's rescue Border Collie who thinks she is bigger than she is.
