The Art of Wesley Dennis

"This artist saw beyond hide and hair and bone. You could see that he understood and loved animals, that he was trying to capture their spirit, personality and expression." So Marguerite Henry described the work of Wesley Dennis. Their books' popularity arises not only from her skill as a storyteller but also from his ability to bring out an animal's personality and emotions with his illustrations. I hope visitors to this site will enjoy learning about this interesting and immensely talented individual.
