She's lived in many places including Egypt, Germany and Singapore, and now lives in Oxfordshire.
Nick Sharratt took an Arts Foundation course at Manchester Polytechnic and a BA in Graphic Design at St Martin's. He is well-known for his illustration of the books of Jacqueline Wilson and Jeremy Strong and for his own titles. He has won many awards, including the Children's Book Award in 2001 for Eat Your Peas. Nick lives in Brighton.
Any pre schooler will be chanting the alphabet in no time with this incredibly colourful and exuberant book. It might start with 'A is for Apple' but then it simply takes off and demonstrates what can be done to an essential book with the experience and creativity of this award winning team of author and illustrator.
A wonderful and unique look at counting and friendship. This very simple picture book is about two friends, Sue and Nick, who like very different things but are still best friends. They introduce us to all their favourite things from one boy called Nick and one girl called Sue to ten cakes for tea, and then all the way back down to one yellow moon shining in the night sky. The artwork is stunning with each artist contributing alternate pages in their own inimitable style. The deceptively simple text is perfect for children learning to read.
