Clive McFarland

Clive is one of those classic picture book artists that captures the simplicity and profound joy of childhood so well. He is showing huge potential in the US with his subtly humorous stories, creating beloved characters with which both children and adults connect. It has been so satisfying to see Clive writing in his own dry voice and being embraced with such enthusiasm in so many trade picture book houses.

Clive’s debut author/illustrator text, A Bed for Bear, launches with HarperCollins USA in 2014.



After the success of A Bed for Bear, Clive recently was signed up to work on his second author illustrated title, Caterpillar Dreams with Harper Collins USA. Set to be a big hit in the US, Clive has started developing texts tailored to a UK market. His stories are out with publishers as we speak and we are so excited for his first steps in our home-market.
