Little People, BIG DREAMS: John Lennon
Written by: Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara
Illustrated by: Octavia Bromell
Meet John Lennon, the boy from Liverpool who dreamed of peace.
When John Lennon formed a band while still in school, he couldn’t have known they were about to change music forever. With their exciting new sounds, rebel attitudes and gift for songwriting, everyone went crazy for The Beatles. Today, John is remembered not just as a musical icon, but as a champion of world peace. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the legendary Beatle’s life.
Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara is the author and creator of the inspirational best-selling series Little People, BIG DREAMS. Growing up in the ’70s in Barcelona, her heroines were Pippi Longstocking, Momo and Tinkerbell, and she felt great admiration for the Spanish poet Gloria Fuertes. She dreamed of becoming a poet just like her one day. It took Maria Isabel almost 40 years and most of her savings to make her dream come true. In 2012, after 20 years of working in advertising, she self-published her first book. Two years later, she released what was meant to be a birth present for her twin nieces, Alba and Claudia: the very first title in the Little People, BIG DREAMS series.
Octavia Bromell combines analogue and digital painting to create vibrant illustrations of the inspirational people and beautiful plants of her dreams. She loves using bright colours, and playing with texture, to make striking work in her own style. She also creates a lot of work on the topic of mental health, and self esteem, drawing on her own experiences to try and understand what it means to be a human in 2020.
