Biographical Notes

Laurence Anholt has written over seventy books, many in collaboration with his wife Catherine. They are both highly regarded in the UK and abroad as a successful author/illustrator team, and have had their books translated into many different languages. \n \nThey met as undergraduates at Falmouth School of Art, and went on to achieve Master`s Degrees from the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal College respectively. \n \nThe books which they have collaborated on are based firmly within their own family`s experiences, and many of Catherine`s illustrations depict scenes which families will recognise. It is this element which has helped to make their books so successful. \n \nLaurence also writes and illustrates his own books, and has written books with other illustrators, notably the Seriously Silly Stories, a topsy turvy series based on traditional tales but with a wonderful new twist. These were hilariously illustrated by Arthur Robins. In this series, Snow White and the Seven Aliens was awarded The Smarties Book Prize, and was shortlisted for the Federation of Children`s Book Groups Children`s Book Award and the Experian Big Three Book Prize. Daft Jack and the Beanstack was on the Sheffield Book Award shortlist and Ghostyshocks and the Three Scares was Pick of the Year for the Children`s Book Award. \n \nLaurence writes for a wide range of ages and is one of the most popular authors of today. \n \nCatherine and Laurence Anholt live in Lyme Regis with their three children.
