John Canty

Award-winning author illustrator whose extraordinary work includes Heads and Tails, Shapes and Colours.
“Reading sweeps us across seas and deserts. Up mountains. Through dark forests. Along crowded streets. From where we once lived, to where we live now and into the future. We experience what people feel. We share their hopes and dreams. We win. We lose. We imagine. We laugh. We learn. We read and are illuminated.”
