Grade 10 Up–This Australian artist has illustrated over 100 books, fiction and nonfiction, in a career that spans over 40 years. His representational style is evocative as well as narrative. Pictures showcases some of his work and includes his commentaries about the selections in detailed captions. The full-color reproductions range in size from spot art to double-page illustrations. Also included are rough, early sketches, storyboards, and brainstorming drawings that will give readers an idea of what is involved in the process of illustrating stories. Though the reproductions are the obvious stars of this book, there is a surprising amount of information in the captions and Sarah Mayor Cox's analytical commentaries on both the illustrations and Ingpen's working process. Perfect for art teachers and students desiring more information on illustration and design, and the work of Ingpen, this beautiful book will have a small but select audience.–Heather E. Miller, Homewood Public Library, AL
