Anyone use Tumblr?
I stopped using Tumblr some time ago and deleted mine.
I couldn't resist this theme though ▶ paulstickland.tumblr.com
I wish we could display Collections like this.

Hi Everyone!
Busy week here, so no change there then!
This is my neighbour Annie's wonderful romantic garden. At 80 she's finding it a bit much, so I'm helping out and had the happiest of days last week trying to slightly tame this lovely wilderness.

Hi +Michele Hax, me too, we have a very small highly designed courtyard garden and a very wild flower strewn allotment, where we grow more flowers than food!

Reminds me of the time a mum came up to me in the street and I thought she said, "My boy always chooses your books". I was pleased, as you would be.
What she actually said was "My boy always chews your books!"

The Very Hungry Caterpillar endures! I'm so sorry your books traveled. No bragging ;) but...or maybe it's disturbing :0 that my grandson's Golden Books are medical texts. He hops up on pop-pop's lap and studies body mechanics. I should get one signed. Too bad Ben Carson went off the deep end. Yikes!

Given that Murphy spends around 22 hours a day fast asleep with his nose on one of my +StrangeStore cushions, I thought it only fair to do this...

Just received a fascinating 20 page academic study, What the child can learn from simple descriptive picture books by Prof. Jörg Meibauer, just published in Germany. It features my 1986 book, Lastwagen, or Trucks. 

Some very interesting points on first glance. The full paper is here, should you be so inclined! https://www.dropbox.com/s/xekqt8eq2k6bw68/Meibauer%20-%20What%20the%20child%20can%20learn%20from%20simple%20descriptive%20picturebooks.pdf?dl=0 #childrensbooks

Introduction
Artist, Author, Illustrator, Designer, Paper Engineer. 
I post my work live on G+. 
Most of it. A great deal of work in the last year has been secret, you'll have to wait for that later this year!
I started 'working out loud' on google+ in July 2011 and it's been a very interesting journey. Being an artist and sharing my illustration and art on google+ is a unique experience. Much of work that I have created in that time has in some way been crowd-edited by the experience of meeting so many diverse, thoughtful and intelligent people here. Their comments, company, humor and the glimpses into their worlds and disciplines have been incredible gifts. 
On my profile I post my about my work, art and design, the world of paper and pop up books, children's books and working with children in schools and libraries, music, gardens and landscape. Dog and daughter, sons and sunshine! 

2014 has seen the 20th Anniversary republishing of my bestselling children's dinosaur books by Random House, an artist residency at Seven Stories in Newcastle, appearences at literary, music and children's festivals, in schools and libraries all over the UK, it's been great fun! Not to forget the creation of a 3 metre high Dinosaur Roar mouth!
Much of that is on my G+ profile and more here Paul Stickland Blog

StrangeStore on Google+ is where I post all my new products, promotional experiments and links to my various stores and goods!

Principally known for my work as the creator, author, illustrator and designer of children's picture and pop up books, including many bestselling books, such as:
 - Dinosaur Roar - The Christmas Bear - Ten Terrible Dinosaurs - Big Dig - Truck Jam - One Bear One Dog - Dinosaurs Galore - A Number of Dinosaurs...
2014 sees the long awaited republishing of Dinosaur Roar! and Ten Terrible Dinosaurs by Random House. This is part of a very exciting collaboration with Nurture Rights and The Natural History Museum in London. 

This has become a wonderful part of my job and probably my favourite. I've been working with children of all ages for the last twenty years sharing my passion for children's literature and creativity via the medium of children's picture and pop up books, giving author visits and pop-up book workshops for children of all ages and abilities, including those with special needs. 
It's a great privilege and I've had the pleasure to meet and work with children in schools, libraries and at many of the major UK Literary Festivals and Music Festivals, in Europe and the US. I often post about this fascinating part of my life on G+ and have had so much very positive feedback. 
If you would like to enquire about an Author Event or Pop Up Workshop, please visit the Paul Stickland Author Visits and Workshops page on my website, or contact me directly here. 

PopUpPaper is my pop up book and paper engineering blog. It features the work of some amazing paper engineers. Pop up books, paper folding, papercraft, paper art, paper toys, origamic architecture, free pop up templates, free pop up card templates, free papertoys, everything paper! 

I live in rural south west of England in Sherborne, Dorset, England with the beautiful bookseller and sensational songwriter  +Helen Stickland , our lovely little daughter Tabitha and my four wonderful sons, Felix, Kit, Gus, Arthur. 
My eldest wonderful and talented son Rowan Stickland lives in Totnes, Devon.
