Shirley Hughes was born and grew up in West Kirby, near Liverpool. She studied at Liverpool Art School and at the Ruskin School of Art in Oxford, before embarking on a career as a freelance illustrator. At first she worked as an interpretive illustrator, but she began to write and design her own picture books when her children were very young. Her first book, Lucy and Tom's Day, was published in 1960. Now living in London's Notting Hill, Shirley Hughes has illustrated over two hundred children's books and is renowned as a champion of children's literature. She has been the recipient of the Other Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal and the prestigious Eleanor Farjeon Award.
"Shirley Hughes' warmth and ability to capture the emotions of the under-5s remain unrivalled" Financial Times "Text and artwork coalesce in a tender story" Parents Magazine "A directness and a simplicity which conjures an appealing little world that most young children are pleased to dip into ... A firm favourite" West Sussex Gazette 20041216 "Makes for excellent bedtime reading" Irish Examiner 20041122
