About the Author

Martin Handford

Martin Handford spent much of his childhood drawing and his earliest influences were cinema epics and playing with toy soldiers. At art college he continued to draw what he calls "busy and militarily correct battle scenes" which led to his job as a freelance illustrator specialising in drawing crowd scenes for numerous clients. Martin now gathers his inspiration from a huge variety of sources; films, visiting museums and art galleries, reading comics and books, and collecting ephemera and trivia. He is fascinated by crowds, and is attracted to their vibes, patterns and details – especially humour; "I love their movement and energy." Gradually, from all this meticulous research, the inspiration for a picture emerges, which Martin embellishes with his own ideas to create astonishing scenes. Each picture takes Martin months to draw. "As I work my way through a picture, I add Wally when I come to what I feel is a good place to hide him," he explains. Read more about the author here.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
