Garry Parson's fertile imagination was put to the test with BILLY'S BUCKET, his first book with Candlewick Press. It's a fantastical birthday story that cautions readers never to underestimate the power of an empty bucket--or a child's imagination! With his illustrations, the artist "tried to create a book as inspiring for children as the books I remember reading when I was young." And in this tale, Garry Parsons was able to let his creativity run wild in portraying Billy's magical world. Of BILLY'S BUCKET, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY says, "Tilting lamps, distorted perspectives, and a mix of objects fully rendered and others merely suggested, clearly announce that the boring old rules of physics do not apply. Imaginative youngsters will find kinship here."


Garry Parsons has worked in freelance editorial, advertising, and children's book illustration. He lives in England.
