A Life In Pictures.... John Burningham

The Guardian's children's books blog has published a wonderful presentation of thirteen works from John Burningham's brilliant career. Beginning in 1963 with the Kate Greenaway medal winning Borka, the story of a goose with no feathers and following his long and brilliant career right the way through, this slide show gives a truly unique view of Burningham's life in pictures. His recent 'It's A Secret' is a personal favourite of mine, as he successfully answers my questions as to what those cats get up to at night.
Burningham will be at the CBI Conference in May (along with Helen Oxenbury, his wife and recent collaborator on 'There's Going To Be A Baby'). This promises to be a 'do-not-miss' event.
