Congratulations Gerry Turley!




I just got the wonderful news that Gerry Turley will have art from A BEAR’S YEAR exhibited in the annual The Original Art Exhibit of the Society of Illustrators for illustrators of “the best children’s books of the year.”–Featured-Artists.aspx

This honor doesn’t surprise me, as I’ve loved Gerry’s art since I first saw his lovely prints of bears that were shown in the Bologna Book fair several years ago.

‘Just perfect’ are the words that come to my mind to describe Gerry’s illustrations. They are both child-friendly and sophisticated, with an inviting warm palette. The illustrations elicit my memories of being in Alaska, seeing mama bears with their cubs.

Just lovely.

Congratulations, Gerry, and thank you for making this book so special.
