This is the Signed unique original Ink drawing by Jill Murphy.

This is an original art board by Jill Murphy for her first ever picture book, the highly acclaimed Peace at Last, published in 1980.

The book tells of Mr Bear who is desperate to get a good night’s sleep but simply can’t doze off due to all kinds of noises in, and out the house. Mr Bear even tries sleeping in the car, but the cats, the bats and even the birds wake him.

This classic picture book proved that Murphy was not only a brilliant storyteller (having already gained great repute for her first fiction book in 1974), but was also a brilliant illustrator.

Jill Murphy’s books have stood the test of time and have now been read by several generations again and again all around the world.

Murphy has been commended, shortlisted and had won a plethora of book awards including the Smarties Prize, the Kate Greenaway Medal, the Children’s Book Award and the Gateshead Gold Award to name just a few.

The artist’s recent passing will sadden many fans around the globe.
