Jarvis did lots of different jobs before creating his first children's book including a bingo caller, a bouncy castle painter, a record sleeve designer and an animation director. He's always doodled characters, and thinks that everything he's done in the past has helped make him a better children's picture book illustrator and writer...maybe not the bingo calling... Jarvis wants the books he creates to be very personal, and particularly loves the nature of children's books, what they can do and how they can be kept and loved as little treasures.
Ava is an odd bod
Boris is too . . .
Clara, we're not sure about.
I think she is, don't you?
Odd Bods is a celebration of every weird and wild child - a hilarious, raucous and occasionally bizarre romp through the quirks and habits of some seriously odd bods. It is the first picture book written by super storyteller Steven Butler and is illustrated by the fantastically talented Jarvis.
