Michael Foreman is without doubt one of the foremost children’s book author/illustrators of the last 100 years. 2010 is the year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of his first book being published and that book, The General, is now available in a terrific new edition.

Michael Foreman was born in an English fishing village. His mother ran the village shop. While he never had children's books, he did get to read the newspapers and magazines sold in the shop.

At the age of fifteen, Michael Foreman began to study art. His first children's book was published while he was still a student. Since then he has written and/or illustrated many, many children's books. He has also worked on magazines, book jackets, animated films, and TV ads.
