John Butler

John Butler has been an illustrator and writer of childrenís books for over thirty years. Through a long and varied career he has also produced work for advertising agencies, design studios, magazines and newspapers. Johnís clients include satirical work for Time magazine, illustrating baby animals for Sesame Street, and design work for Heinz and Crabtree and Evelyn.

Although successful in advertising, publishing has been the constant in his career and has provided most of his work. He has illustrated over 60 childrenís books and written over 12 of these. Johnís books have been published in over 20 countries, with 8 of his titles recently published in China, Russia and Ukraine.†

John has experienced many high points in his publishing career, but nothing surpasses seeing his first book published, and he still gets a thrill when he receives the first edition of a new title.

John is delighted to have received numerous awards (one presented by Sir David Attenborough), but one of the most meaningful and rewarding parts of his work is reading letters and emails from children, parents and grandparents telling him how much they enjoyed his books.
