A Great Big Cuddle

The illustrator (artist who paints, draws on the cover or inside of a book) has used straight drawing with very feathery and light pencil use. Al;l of the pictures are really good-looking in the story book. The illustrator has used colour and shading for it to look child-friendly for a young child's book.
From his interview CHris Riddell said to keep on drawing every day and take your pencil, sharpener, rubber, pen and notebook wherever if you want to succeed into being an artist or want to be an illustrator. (Or maybe something else.)
What I like about this book is that its position and movement of the characters (mostly animals) are like real people, including their expressions.
I haven`t read all of it, only half of it so far. I wouldn`t say I like it but I wouldn`t say I`d dislike it either. It`s like in the middle, I mean I love drawing and art but I’m not very interested in children’s poem or books for children. The art of the illustrator is fine but I’m not much of a fan of the art style he draws. When I first looked at it I found it quite creepy. But now, looking at, it its okay.
