We are deeply saddened by the news of Wallace Edwards’ tragic passing. Wallace was a beloved children’s book illustrator who touched us all with his immense talent, vivid imagination, and warm heart. We were lucky enough to work with Wallace, publishing two of his beautiful books, Once Upon a Line and Woodrow at Sea. He also contributed a piece of original art to A World of Kindness, a title which reflects the man he was.
Wallace’s picture book, The Cat’s Pajamas published by Kids Can Press in 2010, was the inspiration behind our name, Pajama Press. He will be greatly missed, both as a talented illustrator and a wonderful friend. Our hearts go out to Wallace’s loving partner, Kate, and his family.
