Where Harold Went

Into the Country, from Where Harold Went by Barry Trower.

There was a time when I thought it might be fun to illustrate books for children. “Where Harold Went” is a simple tale of an independent lad who spends a day going just about everywhere but still makes it home in time for bed. The pictures are full of simple shapes and the action moves over, under, into and out of different environments. Here are three more scenes from Harold’s day:


Here our hero stands at the bow of a great ship.

Here he makes his way through a tropical scene.

“Deep in the Jungle” from Where Harold Went by Barry Trower.

Below, Harold cools off in the deeps.

“Under the Ocean” from Where Harold Went by Barry Trower.

And as all good things must come to an end, Harold makes his way back to his comfortable bed.

Maybe Harold should get off his butt and get this book published one day?

Wishing you happy trails,

Barry

  1. Barry, I would strongly support you to do that. Check with Kids Can Press, Anansi, Groundwood and a new press that I have grown to love – the Pajama Press. And be sure to invite me to your book launch! Betsy
