Hi there. Welcome to my children’s picture book site.

My name is John Tarlton and I have written and/or illustrated over thirty children’s picture books. My books have been published by such publishers as Scholastic, Harper Collins, Reed Publishing, Shortland Publications, Heinemann Educational, and Sunshine Books. Several of them have had international distribution and foreign language translations.

One of the books I illustrated, The Life Sized Inflatable Whale (1998) published by Scholastics (NZ), and written by Gaelyn Gordon, was chosen as Finalist and Winner, Children’s Choice Award, New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards, 1999).

So, enjoy a wander around my site.

Oh, yes, and comment if you like.
