As someone who is not a fan of illustrated books, my general reaction is: I hope this isn't sapping his energy from creating a REAL book.


:D

But after looking at the pages, even though I won't buy the thing, I have to admit that, for a writer, the man can draw comic art quite well.

Robert went to Ealing Art College, and he has done the most of his covers for the books.
He was asked to do the illustrated book and you don't want to turn down work,unless you're a multi million book selling author. :)
The new one will be out in September.
