Max by Marc Martin

I am rather partial to Marc Martin's illustrations.

I've enjoyed his previous two books A Forest & The Curious Explorer's Illustrated Guide to Exotic Animals A-Z, so I was eagerly awaiting his next book.

Max is a rather cheeky seagull.

He likes fish. He likes chips.
And he especially likes Bob - the fish and chip man.

But one day Bob (and his fish and chip shop) are gone.

Max is a lovely story about friendship and change.

Martin's illustrations are his usual appealing mix of water colour, texta, ink pencil, scanned textures and computer graphics. His seascapes are particularly wonderful.

Check them out - you'll be hooked too :-)

Marc Martin is a French born Australian artist which means that I can include this post in  Paris in July & Dreaming of France.
