His collaborations with Julia Donaldson include Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose, Goat Goes to Playgroup and Animal Music.

Stephen Tucker is a schoolteacher, living in Brighton. He has teamed up with Nick Sharratt to create the best-selling Lift-the-Flap Fairy Tales series.
This particularly jolly retelling of the story of the three little pigs and the wolf is enlivened by Stephen Tucker’s funny, rhyming text, Nick Sharratt’s typically bright and comic illustrations, and by an inspired used of flaps. As the three little pigs leave home to make room for new brothers and sisters and start building their houses, the wolf is shown in his kitchen: lifting the flaps reveals the cupboards to be completely bare! The collapse of the straw and stick houses is dramatically depicted via more lifting of flaps, while a 3D pop up on the final page drops the wolf neatly into the little pigs’ stew! Great fun and it comes with a CD of the story read by the inimitable Anna Chancellor too. ~ Andrea Reece
