John Wallace’s formal training was not in illustration, but rather theology, which he received at University of Cambridge. However, he always loved drawing, and one of his early jobs was as a newspaper cartoonist. In his children’s book illustrations, he is particularly inspired by what he calls “the gooniness” of young schoolchildren. John lives in Broadstairs, England.

"Engages [readers] with the kinds of facts that kids love: Mars is a planet that has two moons, blue sunsets, a canyon as wide as the entire United States, extreme dust storms, and ground that is potentially poisonous. . . . Colorful, playful ­llustrations and simple text make this a pleasing introduction to outer space."
