Nick Sharratt - Author

About the Author

Nick Sharratt is an established illustrator who lives and works in Brighton. He has won many awards including the Sheffield Children’s Book Award (1996, 1997, 2000 and 2001), the Red House Children’s Book Award (1997, 2001 and 2003), the Smarties Book Prize (2000), the Kate Greenaway Medal (2003) and the Blue Peter Award (2003).

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Nick Sharratt’s big and bold illustrations leap off the page and delight very young readers with their cheerful simplicity. The sounds of lots of different noises are celebrated in Toddle Waddle as a toddler takes a simple stroll to the end of the pier and lots of others follow, greedy animals tuck into delicious plates of food at the lovely meal where manners don’t matter in Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose.
