The first of Malcolm Saville's works he illustrated was See How it Grows for the Oxford University Press in 1971.

This is a very attractive book with many black and white illustrations and several full page, full colour paintings, one of which is shown below.

In 1975 he illustrated the book Eat What You Grow for the paperback publishers Carousel.
