Why Flies Buzz by Brenda Parkes - old paperback
Over the past 40 years I have worked on my own series of picture books – FOLK TALES OF THE WORLD, which I wrote and illustrated. The BBC and Channel 4 have made three of these books into short animated films for Children’s TV- WHAT MADE TIDDALIK LAUGH, TORTOISES’ DREAM and THE TIGER CHILD. I have illustrated books for many other authors: Kevin Crossley-Holland, Geoffrey Trease, James Reeves, Adel Geras, Jamila Gavin, and Robert Nye. I also worked for BBC TV, illustrating for JACKANORY and. JACKANORY PLAYHOUSE.
I taught illustration at Harrow, Barnet, West Herts and Croydon Colleges of Art. I have visited schools and libraries all over Britain, to give talks about my work, as well as being a writer in residence for a few of those schools. Recently I worked as a part time teaching assistant at a primary school, helping children who are new to English
