The Boy Who Really,Really, Really Loves Lizards

The Boy Who Really,Really, Really Loves Lizards

The images I have submitted are from my book ‘The Boy who Really, Really, Really loves Lizards’. It follows the story of a boy called Oliver who is obsessed with lizards and reptiles. Everything he does, eats, wears has to be of a reptile nature. His trip to the museum opens his eyes to the real things and his opinions change! The story looks at the obsessions that children have and how everything, from what they wear, eat and do, has to has to revolve around it. These obsessions can last a few weeks then they are often taken over by something new and it all begins again… The book was completed for my final project of my MA in Children's Book Illustration.
