About the Author
Laurence and Catherine Anholt live and work in a house and studios on top of a hill above the sea in Devon. They started making picture books together in 1984 when their first daughter was born. Since then they have created more than 200 books, which are published all over the world in more than 30 languages.
Their titles range from classic picture books such as Babies Love Books, featured in The Sunday Times 100 Modern Children's Classics, to Laurence's self-illustrated Artists series - an introduction to great artists for young children. Laurence was also included in the Independent on Sunday's Top 10 Children's Authors in the UK, described as 'one of the most versatile authors writing for children today'.
The Anholts have been closely involved with a number of literacy schemes such as the UK Government funded Bookstart scheme, which encourages parents to share books with babies from the earliest possible age.
