Lee Wildish became interested in illustration and art at a very young age. As soon as he graduated from the University of Nottingham he started working as a graphic designer for an advertising agency, learning the ins and outs of graphics and corporate literature. Several years later he ventured into greeting cards, where he produced illustrations and design concepts from inception through completion. Lee now loves to illustrate children's books and adds humor to his work whenever possible. He believes that there s nothing more warming than seeing people enjoying a published book that he has illustrated. Lee now lives in Nottingham, England.
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, May 2012:
"The narrative is particularly effective in converting childish concern into caretaker reassurance ('When your mom and dad leave, pat your grandpa’s hand and say, "Don’t worry. They always come back" ’)...While grandpas will obviously enjoy sharing this story with their little ones (and parents will enjoy purchasing it for a Father’s Day gift for said grandpa), there is enough playfulness here to broaden the appeal to a wider audience."
