Lindsey Gardiner's first book for Orchard, Here Come Poppy and Max, proved tremendously popular with its bright, quirky artwork and colourful characters. As well as writing and illustrating children's books, Lindsey works as a part-time lecturer in Printed Textiles at the University of Dundee and as a freelance textile designer.From Booklist:
Ages 2-5. Poppy, who previously appeared in Here Come Poppy and Max (2000), announces a few things she would like to do when she grows up: "paint pictures like an artist; score goals like a soccer player; spin around like a ballet dancer" and so on. In the large-scale illustrations, Poppy blissfully tries out each of her ambitions. Her dog, Max, whom she clearly adores, figures prominently in every scene. Gardiner's background in design shows clearly in the composition and colors of the lively, varied double-page spreads. With painting, drawing, and cut-paper collage, she creates a series of satisfying pictures, full of movement, unusual colors, and lively details, yet well-focused enough for very young children to comprehend. Great for reading aloud, this picture book is a natural to start kids talking about what they'd like to do someday--and for showing off inspiring art related to their dreams. Carolyn Phelan
