About Ian Whybrow and Tony Ross

whybrow

Ian Whybrow is a prolific writer of children's books since his first was published in 1989. He has written over 100 books for children, has been translated into 27 languages and is published in 28 countries. His books are known for their humour and child-friendliness and range from picture books to novels, short stories and poetry.

Whybrow was born in Gillingham, Kent, in 1951 and grew up in Margate and Hong Kong. He began his professional career as a teacher, becoming head of English and head of sixth form at The John Lyon School in Harrow on the Hill in north-west London. He subsequently was able to give up teaching to write full-time.

whybrow Tony Ross is one of the most popular and successful of all children's illustrators. Born in London in 1938, he never thought he'd be an artist, but he says he 'fell in to it' when his dreams of being a cowboy fell through after John Wayne failed to answer his letter of application! Tony trained at the Liverpool School of Art, and worked as a graphic designer, as the Art Director of an advertising agency, and as Senior Lecturer in Art at Manchester Polytechnic. During this time he drew cartoons for magazines such as Punch.

His first book was published in 1976. Tony has illustrated more than 800 books, and as well as drawing all of the fantastic pictures for the Horrid Henry story books, he has illustrated books for many other authors, including Roald Dahl, Michael Palin and Paula Danziger. He also finds time to write and illustrate his own books!
