Retrospective and sumptuous illustrated biography
Walker launched Helen Oxenbury: A Life in Illustration by Leonard S Marcus at the Chris Beetles Gallery, where there is an exhibition of Oxenbury's work - with many red dots already assigned.
Oxenbury has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice, and, with her husband John Burningham, received the 2018 Booktrust Lifetime Achievement Award. Her many classic books include We're Going on a Bear Hunt, written by Michael Rosen. She has a long-standing relationship with Walker, which has all its titles by her in print - and she is the illustrator of Walker's bear logo. Helen Oxenbury: A Life in Illustration is the first biography on Walker's list.
