Meanwhile, Francesca Dow, the Managing Director of the children’s category at Penguin Random House, also gave a fond statement.

She described Raymond’s books as “picture masterpieces that address some of the fundamental questions of what it is to be human”.

Francesca added that his work was equally loved by children and adults alike.

She praised his “kindness, integrity and generosity”, which displayed itself in his work.

“All of us who had the privilege of working with him will miss him,” she lamented.
