    Great list:) My favourite probably has to be Robert Ingpen. If only I could find an illustrator like that to illustrate my books, I would be sorted!

    @Olive I was reading something on him recently where they described him as “the keeper of imagination” 🙂 You should write to him about your eco books!

    Aw I love the first one, that ghost ilustration by Robert Ingpen. That ilustration can tell many stories

    Roisin, what a great idea for a blog. Had a laugh watching the videos. Salvidor Dali was one of a different kind. It’s a shame the sound died at the end of the Beatles clip, lovely video.

    @Olive Hope Nina Finn-Kelsey doesn’t read this blog. 🙂

    @Ronan I have some more Salvador Dali clips that I’ll be recommending in the near future – I replaced the Beatles video with a Dave Fanning version that doesn’t fade out towards the end. There is so much great Beatles footage to choose from, I could watch them all day!
