Illustrator Steven Lenton shares his top 5 books featuring unusual friends
Bumble and Snug by Mark Bradley
Two crazy and charming funny friends, stylishly brought to life in full colour dynamism. Snug-gle in and read this one together!
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
My all time favourite Dahl, with only child James meeting a host of wonderful insect friends who go on a huge adventure together, it’s just peachy!
Rabbit and Bear by Jim Field and Julian Gough
Beautifully illustrated and written by a such a talented and creative duo. Exploring friendship dynamics and emotions through fun stories, this series is almost too good to bear!
The Claude Series by Alex T Smith
Is there an odder pairing than a dog and his sock best friend?! Quirky, strange and beautiful, be sure to check out the tv series too!
Frank and Bert by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros
A hilarious pairing of a fox and a bear in a new series of picture books, deceptively simple in design, the pacing and humour is, to be frank, fantastic!
