Bob Staake may write and illustrate his own books, but he also LOVES to graphically augment the manuscripts of other kid-friendly authors.

Do you have a book you'd like Bob to illustrate? Then please contact his lovely agent, the fabulous Gillian MacKenzie.

To see a few examples of Bob's award-winning book work, please click the screaming kid to the left.

We promise it won't hurt a bit.

"Staake's illustrations (are) a stylistic collision of Russian constructivism and pop art, (and) explode with energy playing off of basic geometric shapes and angles and swimming in saturated colors."

-- Publishers Weekly

"Staake's (picture books) are notable for the sophistication of their graphic design. Simple enough to hold the attention of toddlers, these colorful, computer-enhanced images are also visually interesting enough to please preschoolers and parents as well."

-- American Library Association

"Bob Staake's modern, crisp illustrations ... practically jump off the page."
