Meet the Author


Maurice Pledger is an internationally-acclaimed artist known best for his realistic and detailed illustrations of animals and wildlife. He has had no formal art training, but achieves the realism and detail in his beautiful artwork by spending many hours in the field observing, sketching and studying his subjects in their natural environment. First published at the young age of 17, he has since had his illustrations featured on greeting cards, prints, gifts, and books. He has created several successful series, including the Peek-and-Find series, the Maurice Pledger Nature Trails series, and the Maurice Pledger Sticker Books. He is the distinguished recipient of the 1992 Francis Williams Illustration Award for the Best Descriptive Illustration. This honor is given only once every 5 years by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
