Hailing from the town of Farnborough (the one with the Airshow), Jim drew from a very early age with a burning ambition to 'make cartoons'. He studied animation at Hull School of Art and Design, graduated in 2002, gradually paved his way into the animation industry working as a director for Partizan in London.

Meanwhile, he was also penning his way as a freelance illustrator working for editorial publications...

His first picture book Cats Ahoy! written by Peter Bently won the Booktrust Roald Dahl-Funny Prize in 2011 and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway award.

His favourite picture books include 'The Jolly Postman' by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, 'The Incredible Book Eating Boy' by Oliver Jeffers and anything illustrated by Charley Harper.

Jim likes to dabble playing his guitar in-between scanning and waiting for publishers feedback.

Jim lives in East London with his three bikes and girlfriend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still my favourite (and those around me) from the 'Oi!' series, to date
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 July 2022
From the back cover of the paperback version ~ 2015/Hodder & Stoughton (image below refers):

🐱 ‘Cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools and gophers sit on sofas, but Frog does not want to sit on a log! 🐸

From the award-winning KES GRAY and the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, JIM FIELD.

A hilarious rhyming tale about a frog who discovers that all animals have their special places to sit!’

ooOoo

Measuring around 24.5 cm square, the shiny finish card cover is hard to miss in a sunny yellow background, with frog apparently in his designated place...on a log...where else?
Well, this is not just any old frog...this is one who begs to question as it turns out, with a twist at the end that is largely unexpected, for most!

The book begins with the opportunity to claim ownership on the inside cover page.
Across the colourful, matte finish, double page spreads we meet a variety of animals, all with short rhymes that stick in the mind.
We start with Cat, the ‘place’ designator…

Naturally in a book of this kind, the smart illustrations have more in them than first meets the eye, offering scope for further discussion, e.g. facial expressions or the headlines on the rather dapper looking hare's newspaper (image below refers).
The accompanying text, which includes lots of speech & a repeat element, is clear throughout; often ENHANCED at times FOR EFFECT!
