Alison Jay

  • 5 stars across 70 books
For the first time, Alison Jay illustrates her own storyline. Her love of nature and sympathy for the smallest creatures comes to the fore as she wordlessly tells the story of a growing friendship and understanding between a little girl and a bumble bee. Given free rein, her artwork is colourful and expressive and gently brings children to an understanding of the relationship between the human world and our natural environment.
