He has since illustrated a raft of picture books including Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball which was runner-up for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2001. Since then Charles has illustrated many books, a number of which he has also written. His Little Wombat series has garnered international recognition for its warm and humorous depiction of an iconic marsupial.
