      Nancy Ekholm Burkert's illustrations for the first US edition of James and the Giant Peach. I love Quentin Blake, but I prefer her art for this book. So dark and beautiful.

    Johan Thörnqvist Illustrations are like little drops of happiness. I love the nostalgia and the tenderness that emanate from them. Everyday surroundings that most of us take for granted are metamorphosed into magical scenes.
