I couldn’t find many people that focus on linocutting within children’s illustration, but I did find this article from Creative Bloq. I found a couple of peoples work that I think is interesting but some of the final outcomes don’t all look like linocuts.

Kazano Kohara is a childrens illustrator that works using linocuts. This book cover works really well because of the simple shapes and the 3 colours used. The colour palette works really well and I am curious about how the transparent like look of the ghosts because they looks as though they are textured, so I would like to use this in my work and somehow include a textured print, but I am not sure how I would go about this.
Jonny Hannah, although isn’t a childrens’ illustrator, I really like the idea of printing one layer onto a two tone background. This is something that I think would be a good idea to use within my work and would probably work well with more than just the three colours.
Stanley Dogwood focuses on landscape and seascape scenes and this image stands out to me because of the clean lines in the water, and I think that this would look great as a background for my animal prints to make it easy for children to establish whether it is a land animal or an animal that lives in water. This is something that I will definitely consider using within my project as I think that it would make my animal really stand out.
