About Daniel Gilpin

Artist and designer Basher has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich colour palette, his characters fill the gap between edgy Manga and the cuteness of Hello Kitty!

Review quote

BooklistBasher continues his series of science primers that are so entertaining, kids may read them for fun, beyond the classroom walls. . . .the authors blend a surprising wealth of facts into the chatty, humorous text, which is filled with analogies kids can relate to. A hot spot in the earth's mantle, for example, is "like a huge, angry pimple on Earth's face. . . . " the highly approachable language, animated cast of characters, awe-inspiring facts, and conservation messages make this an appealing starting point for students seeking basic earth-science information.
