About the Author

BENJAMIN FLOUW graduated from a CG animation school in France and moved to London to create backgrounds for Cartoon Network's show The Amazing World of Gumball. He is now based in Paris where he works as a freelance designer and illustrator for films and advertisements, with clients such as Variety, Martha Stewart Living and American Express. His influences run from mid-century illustrators like Miroslav Sasek and Mary Blair to 90's low-poly video games. The Golden Glow is the first picture book he has both written and illustrated.

Reviews

"Morelli and Ouriou's translation flows nicely, and the story's mysterious golden glow flower . . . serves as a McGuffin around which Flouw builds his striking introduction to botanical exploration." --Publishers Weekly

"The story is solid enough, but it's the illustrations that steal the show." --Kirkus Reviews

"Flouw nicely integrates diagrams and information about backpacking into this pleasant, eye-catching picture book, and his blocky, colorful artwork has a friendly, modern feel. . . . A pleasant blend of fiction and nonfiction, this will serve as a helpful introduction to hiking for little ones." --Booklist

"Sweet with a subtle environmental message, this is a story that glows." --BookPage

"Although The Golden Glow is fiction, there is some informational content included as well as a gentle nod to the idea of conservation. . . . Recommended." --CM Magazine

"A story of a hike and a quest, this is also stylishly informative about alpine flowers, botanical drawing and even about the peace of a mountain sunset. . . . An enticing, unusual book about the natural world." --Toronto Star
