About Chris Robertson:
Chris Robertson is just a big kid at heart who happens to write and
draw Children’s Picture Books. His most recent book is “My Yellow
Umbrella” has hit the #1 spot on Amazon’s Bestseller list for Baby &
Toddler Color Books, Bedtime and Dreaming and Children’s Game Books.

Peanut-Butter Sandwich” and “Kit and Kaboodle”. He broke into the
Children’s book field in 2005 with “Little Miss Liberty” published by
Chronicle Books then subsequently by Scholastic Books in paperback.
whimsical cartoon style feels light-hearted and carefree which seems to
perfectly match his humorous writing style. He lives in Pasadena with
his wife and three boys, all of whom, own a yellow umbrella.
There is no denying that I love Chris Robertson. I love his artwork and the way he captures childhood in the pages of a book. Harry and the Hot Lava is a charming picture book about a young boy with a wild imagination. Kids will love this simple story that depicts a common childhood game requiring nothing more than the desire to play. Kids will enjoy the familiar theme and the bright colors of the illustrations.
My kids are big fans of Chris Robertson and they always ask to read his books over and over again. His illustrations remind me of cartoons from when I was little, yet they are fresh and modern enough to appeal to my kids as well.
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with one of Chris Robertson’s books.
