Ed Eaves was born in the West Midlands and went to Kingston University where he got a First Class Honours Degree in Illustration. He is a young, upcoming illustrator who is also working on titles for Little Tiger Press and Puffin. Fairy Tale Secrets, written by Marion Rose (September 03), is Ed's first book. Fairy Tale Secrets reveals what those fairy tale characters get up to when everyone's back is turned. Ed's bright and cheeky illustrations perfectly complement Marion's witty rhymes. Ed claims that he is 'still a big kid really' which explains his interest in video games, old toys and comics. He also enjoys golf and walking and has been on drawing trips to Madrid and Budapest. Edward lives in Solihull, in the West Midlands.
