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.
Six beautiful books 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. From 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. You can find a reading of each book on Julie's YouTube channel, Julie Dawson Artist and Author.
Her two most recent books are particularly timely and timeless. The Sillybillies Find Stripes and Spots 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 The Sillybillies Find Confidence, the story focuses on a current concern young people have - building their self-esteem.
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: 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.
