Our first children's book is by London-based artist Daniel Frost and will delight folks of all ages with its visual vividness and ingenious humor. The wordless story starts with a boy and his dog waking up to a sunny morning in the imaginary town of Frostville. It's too nice a day to stay indoors, but little do they know that an epic chase awaits them just outside the door!
Daniel draws inspiration from the strangeness of everyday life to conjure up exaggerated characters (be they elongated or stout, bespectacled or mustached) and inventive street scenes, all full of color and activity and detail. The book has enough action that it can be read over and over again with new discoveries to be made. And its wordless narrative allows room to create backstories, enabling imaginations to flourish.
Printed in full-color in Oakland, CA using soy-based inks on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper. Measures 8.5" wide x 9.5" tall, softcover perfect bound, 100 lb cover stock, 80 lb text interior, 48 pages.
Daniel hails from Staffordshire, England and graduated from the Royal College of Art with a Masters in 2010. He has worked with many clients including The New York Times, Anorak, Tate Britain, The Times, Norse Projects, and Nike. Daniel won the Oberon Book award for his illustrated version of Gulliver's Travels, the D&AD Illustration for Advertising Award, and was featured in the 2013 Pick Me Up Selects artist showcase in London.
"Daniel's style feels modern and fresh with a nod to the illustrations of the 1950-60s that required a limited palette. There's a lot to look at with each page turn and I imagine a kid pointing and laughing at so much of it." -Book By Its Cover http://www.book-by-its-cover.com/childrens/atop-hill-frostville
