Illustrator Charity Russell

The art is gentle and Aunty Jane is such a pretty older woman. This feels so refreshing…North Street critique by Ellen LeFleche

This is Steve’s second book with Charity Russell. Charity also created the lovely, fun illustrations for Filbert the Lonely Flamingo. Steve co-authored Filbert with his sister Ellen Wolfson Valladares.

Originally from Zambia, Africa, she moved to the U.K. as a teenager, and now lives there with her husband, two children and their dog Frank. Charity crochets more than knits and is pretty good at it. She would like a fuchsia flamingo friend to do the flamenco with!
