Julie, you only have to put the name Rene Cloke into search in the Cave and you will come up with 37 books that she illustrated for EB. She did a great deal of work for both Dean and Award and was actually still illustrating books in her 90s.

Thanks, Tony. I've put her name into the cave and have looked at the books she illustrated. I also put in a Google search and found that she was born in 1904, or 1905 it says and was originally from Plymouth. I also see that you can also buy some of her illustrations as posters. :)

Her work is so lovely.

Rene Cloke has been one of my favourite illustrators since I was a child (she illustrated a number of the Dean & Son Blyton books), as have Grace Lodge and Stuart Tresilian.

May I add my praise to the Lashings of Links? Everything under one roof so to speak, very useful indeed.
