News Remembering John Burningham The much-loved writer and artist, who created over 70 books published around the world, passed away on Friday 4 January. He is survived by his wife, the illustrator Helen Oxenbury, their children Lucy, Bill and Emily, and seven grandchildren. John was born on 27 April, , in Surrey, and in his youth attended various progressive schools including Summerhill.

He was awarded his School Certificate in English Literature, but failed other subjects, including Art. John registered as a Conscientious Objector in and spent two years doing Alternative Military Service before beginning a course in Design and Illustration at the Central School of Arts.

There he met Helen Oxenbury, who was studying Theatre Design. John travelled widely, designed iconic posters for London Transport and taught Illustration part-time before publishing his first picture book, Borka, the Adventure of a Goose With No Feathers, with Jonathan Cape in , winning the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration. This began an unbroken life of picture-book creation — John then went on to create over 70 books published in many countries around the world.

In , after having completed his own day circumnavigation of the globe, his work on the centenary edition of Around in the World in Eighty Days was published. How do you put that across to small children? He never spoke down to children, always treating them with the utmost respect.

It was wonderful to celebrate with John last spring when he was awarded the Booktrust Lifetime Achievement Award at the same time that his wife, Helen Oxenbury, was honoured. This was a fitting recognition of his sparkling career, which spanned well over fifty years and saw him win numerous awards around the world, including two Greenaway medals, the New York Times Best Illustrated Award and the Kurt Maschler Award. John will be much missed by his publishing family here at Penguin Random House, and our thoughts and very best wishes are with Helen and his family.
