At the Bottom of Dudley’s Garden
Posted 6 months ago and submitted by Anna Platts | Share link:

At the Bottom of Dudley’s Garden is the best selling children’s book I was approached to illustrate last year by author Dinah Mason-Eagers. It is an enchanting story for all ages about the importance of bees & wildflowers, inspired by Dinah’s Father in Law – an ecologist who gave over a large portion of his beloved garden to wildflowers, much to Dinah’s then bemusement. Since publication it has raced up the charts, peaking in the Top 10 Gardening Books for Children on Amazon. It’s available in many good bookshops, on Amazon as well as through my own personal website & that of the publisher – Crumps Barn Studios. Dinah & myself are also taking part in a book signing event at Burford Garden Company in June. It was an absolute pleasure to work on the illustrations for this book and I can’t wait for the sequel!

"In 2008 I was looking for a designer to translate design ideas I had into reality and had the very good fortune to find Anna. Right from the start she was extremely easy and personable to work with and proved to have a real understanding of what I was looking for. She has endless amounts of patience and I have been delighted with the results of the projects we have worked on together. I am very happy to recommend her to anyone looking for an illustrator."
