"Hello, My name is Babette Cole and I write and illustrate children's picture books.

I got fed up with school so I left and went to Art School at Canterbury in England. I left there in 1973 with a first class honours degree.

Then, since I had some work published by the BBC. I could go to other publishers with my own books and finally got one published in 1976.

I have lived in different parts of the world like Africa and the West Indies. At present I live in Dorset in England..

I have a stud farm in England and I breed Show Hunters which I ride myself. I have been riding show ponies and horses since I was seven years old. I do a lot of side saddle riding - My little horse, Hot Tip, (Scrappit) and I have been the National Champions for the past three years."
