Something a little different from me today – and the kind of thing I don’t usually post about but I’ll make an exception for a good cause!

I was contacted by Clementine, who used to work for Alma Books, as a charity she supports called Three Peas is holding an online auction of children’s book illustration artwork. The charity supports refugee families stranded in Greece and Clementine has provided this information about the auction:

From 23rd of June to 2nd July 2017:  Illustrators for Three Peas Art Auction!
Three Peas charity will be auctioning artwork by some of the best-loved children’s book illustrators… You could grab an original Axel Scheffler, Tony Ross, Lauren Child or Chris Riddell drawing, get your hands on limited prints by Oliver Jeffers or Ella Okstad or even a Liz Pichon Tom Gates doodle and much, much more! 
Come in and browse…
All the funds raised will go to Three Peas charity, helping stranded refugee families and individuals in Greece.

It sounds like a pretty good thing to me, and  there are some lovely artworks which have been donated. So if you love children’s illustrations and want to support a good cause, you might want to pop over the Jumblebee and have a look! 🙂
