My debut picture book as both author and illustrator, Pink Lion, will be published by Walker Books on July 6th.
Wings! by Paul Stewart, with collage illustrations by me, is the story of a penguin who wishes he could fly, and with a bit of help from his friends, discovers a talent he never knew he had (Otter Barry Books, 2016). It’s out in paperback this August.
“Jane Porter’s richly coloured mixed media collage pictures are full of humour and pathos: her love of birds shines through in every one.” Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub
“Paul Stewart’s delightful tale of discovering your own special talents, even though they may be different from those around you, is brought to life by Jane Porter’s beautiful collage illustrations.” Chris Riddell, The Guardian
“A fantastic book of friendship and working together, with some truly stunning papercraft illustrations” Read It Daddy
“I love this story, which is beautifully illustrated by Jane Porter – she depicts all the birds for us so well, and they are utterly delightful; my favourite picture is Owl giving Penguin a big hug. The story shows us how important supportive friends are, and how we all have a special talent, maybe an unexpected one. A lovely book.” Parents in Touch
My board book, This Rabbit, That Rabbit (Walker Books, 2013) was chosen by Booktrust to be given to every new baby born in the UK in 2015.
“A funny board book that will have you and your child giggling” Booktrust
“This is a lovely first picture book – the rabbits were fun and full of personality” Get Kids into Books
Duck Sock Hop, with words by Jane Kohuth, was published by Dial Books in the US in 2012. It’s a wonderful rhyming text about a group of ducks dancing their socks off.
“Charming” New York Times
“The illustrations pop and rock with the rhythm of the rhymes” Kirkus Reviews
I’ve also illustrated a non-fiction series for Ladybird and several early readers for Orion.
