Discover Stories & Fun with The Sillybillies
Fun. Adventure. Understanding. Appreciation.
Welcome to the world of The Sillybillies. These happy characters live in a colorful, fanciful world filled with friends, beauty, and heartfelt lessons. The Sillybillies series of books was created to bring happiness to children – and adults – who love the power of imagination.
Five beautiful books (and counting) take readers on a wonderful journey while teaching kindness, confidence, and other positive values. Written and illustrated by Julie Dawson, they are as original as they are unique. In the first book, she introduces the characters with a bit of whimsical poetry.
The stories and illustrations spread happiness with their upbeat approach. Adding to the fun, each of the characters sports a bell, a star, and a ribbon that little ones can find. This is the current list of publications – and more are on the way! You can find a reading of each book on Julie's YouTube channel.
Her most recent book, The Sillybillies Find Stripes and Spots, is particularly timely and timeless because it focuses on appreciating each other’s differences to “turn hate to appreciate to celebrate.” A children’s book for all ages, the book was specially created to spark meaningful conversations for kids and adults, alike.
In 2022, Julie won Next Generation Indie Book Award for her illustrations in The Sillybillies Find Stripes and Spots. She is currently working on a new book to help bring confidence to kids around the world.
Julie’s books have inspired all kinds of Sillybillies magic around the characters' fans from onesies to reproductions that would look wonderful in a child’s room. Anyone can visit The Sillybillies by simply opening a book, seeing them on YouTube, or visiting this site—they will be thrilled to spend time with you.
