Biographical Notes

Steve Antony is a highly talented and versatile author-illustrator. He has had a passion for storytelling from an early age, but it was the MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge that really enabled him to channel this passion. Since embarking on the MA course, he has enjoyed creating picture books on a range of subjects from the Queen's hat to a war between rectangles and lizards! He aims to create picture books that are slightly 'off the wall', books that children will laugh at and adults will tweet about, but most of all, books that he enjoys.

A simple, funny lesson in manners...The book has a Jon Klassen appeal to it, with its repeated text, restricted colour palate. minimalist backgrounds and the way that sometimes only tiny changes to the artwork - a raised eyebrow on the whale for instance - are used to convey different emotions — Books For Keeps
uses monochrome to splendid effect, not just for the quite justifiably grumpy Mr Panda, but for all the animals he meets and to whom he offers his delicious, brightly-coloured tray of doughnuts. Each of them is refused and clever young children will soon guess the reason why — The School Librarian

The Queen's Handbag

Steve Antony
Authors:
Steve Antony

With a Jon Klassen appeal, Steve Antony is the one to watch. A naughty swan steals the Queen's handbag, so naturally, the Queen races after it. She follows it all around the United Kingdom in various modes of transport, including an Aston Martin car, a motorbike, a Red Arrow plane, a speedboat, a train and a horse. Taking in sights such as Stonehenge, Snowdonia, Giants Causeway, Edinburgh Castle, Oxford and then arriving back in London, this chase includes the Queen's butler and an awful lot of policemen. A witty and stylish celebration of the United Kingdom and the Queen.Praise for The Queen's Hat: 'This is a wonderful romp of a read that's a great introduction to London, royalty and all that makes Britain great.' - Sun'... this picture book is hard to beat for its sweet simplicity and charming monochromatic drawings.' - The Times
