Knight School
by Jane Clarke

My blog has been a little neglected over the summer as I have been flat out artworking the sequel to Knight Time. Knight School is due to be published in 2012.
I have finally updated my page on this week. It has been on my To Do List for far too long! I have now added many of my published books.

Back to School

This Ladybird classic really takes me back to my school days. Warm milk, the smell of the canteen, the nature table and dancing in the school hall in big knickers!
Illustrated by J. H. Wingfield 1959.

I love the line and humour of Richard Scarry.

This image reminds me of trips to Woolworths for my new school kit. A geometry set, garish fluffy pencil case and new pumps!

My very dog eared copy of The School by John Burningham.
First published 1974. This image reminds me of my very first school. It was a victorian building in a small village in Suffolk.

Pieces from a wooden puzzle by Victory picked up at a car boot just the other week.
