Benji Davies, The Colours of Childhood

My favourite book of his must be Grandpa’s Island and it is the most colourful book he has ever done which is quite particular because Grandpa’s Island mostly talks about the grief of the little boy after his grandfather passed away. Here is an animated trailer for his latest book The Storm Whale in Winter:
