Sidelights

Author and illustrator R.W. Alley had intended to be a serious scholar of the history of art, but during college he found himself "doodling in the margins and dreaming up stories," as he explained on his home page. Just after he graduated from college, Alley sold his first book, The Ghost in Dobb's Diner, and he has been writing and illustrating picture books, chapter books, and easy readers for children ever since. After a brief, four-year career as an in-house greeting card artist and writer and editor, first with Hallmark Cards in Kansas City-, Missouri and then with Paramount Cards in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, he has been making his pictures from his home studio while wearing his slippers. Working with Abbey Press, Alley has illustrated the multi-volume "Elf Help" series for children and adults that walks readers through ways to deal with troubles in their lives. In 1997 he was given the opportunity to illustrate Michael Bond's new "Paddington Bear" picture-book stories, based on the author's classic 1958 children's novel A Bear Called Paddington. "Alley may be best known for the 'Paddington Bear' books he illustrates with tiny, tumbling scenes of ursine life," wrote Amy Myrick in East Bay Newspapers, adding that "the books, translated into many foreign languages, have earned him international recognition."

Though Alley has written several self-illustrated titles, he is better known for the illustrations he creates for other writers. Of his work on Richard and Roni Schotter's picture book There's a Dragon About: A Winter's Revel, Linda Callaghan wrote in Booklist that "Alley's pen-and-ink drawings with bright watercolors capture the enthusiasm" of the tale. Reviewing Old Winter, written by Judith Benét Richardson, Carolyn Phelan commented in Booklist that "children will delight in the details of Alley's lively ink-and-watercolor illustrations." Tony Johnston's The Bull and the Fire Truck caused Phelan to write in a subsequent Booklist review that "Alley's line-and-watercolor artwork brims with action and humorous details." A Publishers Weekly critic commented on Alley's illustrations for Little Flower, written by Gloria Rand: "Alley's kicky ink-and-watercolor artwork captures the warmth of the bond" displayed between the young pet owner heroine and her pet pig. In a review of the same title for School Library Journal, Jody McCoy wrote that "Alley's colorful cartoon illustrations … suit the text delightfully" and "flow from page to page with variety and verve." The story of a farm girl who longs to be a princess, is told in The Real, True Dulcie Campbell, written by Cynthia C. De-Felice. Phelan, in her Booklist review, considered Alley's work for DeFelice's book "lively" and "appealing," while Ruth Semrau noted in School Library Journal that the illustrator's "pastel watercolors are light and cheerful, never too scary, even in the creepy parts." About Kate Laing's Best Kind of Baby, in which Sophie does not want to acknowledge that she is going to be a big sister, Connie Fletcher wrote in Booklist: "Alley's warmly humorous watercolors underscore Sophie's troubled state." Alley's illustrations tackle such subjects as fear of the dark in S.J. Fore's Tiger Can't Sleep and feeling out of place in both Ballerino Nate by Claudia Mills and Ziggy's Blue Ribbon Day by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley.

In his work as illustrator, Alley divides his time between picture books and chapter books. In The Great Googlestein Museum Mystery, a chapter book featuring adventurous mice written by Jean VanLeeuwen, "Alley's black-and-white sketches add to the fun and help to clarify some of the story's details," according to Kay Weisman in Booklist. Shara Alpern, reviewing the same title for School Library Journal, wrote that "the small, amusing black-and-white drawings scattered throughout further enhance the reading experience." The "Pearl and Wagner" stories, written by Kate McMullan, are easy-to-read chapter books about a rabbit and a mouse who are the closest of friends. "Alley's expressive art captures the emotions and high jinks with winsome detail," wrote Gillian Engberg in a Booklist review of Pearl and Wagner: Two Good Friends. Laura Scott, reviewing the same title in School Library Journal, commented that the "cheerful illustrations enhance the text with appealing animal characters rendered with extraordinary expression." Commenting that readers will feel as though they, along with Pearl and Wagner, are members of Ms. Star's class, a Publishers Weekly critic wrote that "Alley's illustrations enhance this effect with their knee-level or just-at-the-next-desk perspective."

Along with his work on picture books and chapter books, Alley has also illustrated poetry collections. Mrs. Brown on Exhibit, and Other Museum Poems features twenty-one poems by Susan Katz about students and their eccentric teacher as they travel through a museum on a field trip. "Full of intriguing details and humorous touches, Alley's cheerful watercolor illustrations give young children plenty to look at," Phelan wrote in Booklist. Commenting on the same title for Publishers Weekly, a critic cited Alley's "sprightly, realistic" art. "Alley's delightful cartoon-like illustrations emphasize the fun and the action" in the poetry, according to a Kirkus Reviews contributor.

When HarperCollins began publishing more of Bond's "Paddington Bear" picture-book stories in 1997, they asked Alley to create the new illustrations. They were so impressed with his work that they also hired him to re-illustrate the earlier "Paddington" picture books, and Alley's illustrations are now featured in both older and newer "Paddington Bear" stories around the world. Paddington Bear, a picture book in which Bond retells his original story of how the Brown family first met the traveling bear at Paddington Station in London, was released to celebrate Paddington's fortieth anniversary. "Alley's lively ink-and-watercolor-wash illustrations capture the winsome charm and gentle humor of this unassuming bear," wrote Phelan in her Booklist review of the book. Discussing Alley's more recent work, Paddington Bear in the Garden, Phelan wrote that "Alley's endearing ink-and-watercolor illustrations offer expressive drawings in pleasing colors" and added that the title would be well liked by Paddington fans.

Alley wrote on his home page: "I have been making up stories and drawing pictures to illustrate them for about as long as I can remember. In many ways, I still spend my days the same way I did when I was ten. This is somewhat confusing to my wife and children, but I don't seem to be able to help myself."

"I have never wanted to be the sort of visual artist who creates images to hang on the wall or set on a pedestal," Alley told SATA: "I've always enjoyed looking at these things, thinking about them, visiting galleries and museums full of them and, of course, studying their history. But, making them … no, that wasn't me. Making art for me has always been about telling stories and sharing those stories with as many people as possible. I figured out early on that books were the way to do this. I like writing my own stories because I have complete control over what part of the story is told with words and what is told with pictures. In illustrating another author's words, my focus changes; I have to find ways into the story that will allow me to add to the words, without changing their tone and meaning. In both cases, the key to being a good illustrator is, I think, to be able to first present the narrative of the story in a clear and inviting format and then to enlarge the narrative with strong character drawing and scene-setting. I know I've been successful when I go to a library and find copies of my books that have been truly worn and torn." Though he enjoys what he does, as he explained to Amy Myrick for East Bay Newspapers, "It's work, it's definitely work…. It's work because it doesn't get done unless you make yourself do it."
