Nick Sharratt

Nick liked drawing from an early age. 'When I was nine,' he says, 'a picture that I'd drawn at school was pinned up in the hall, and the husband of one of the teachers saw it and offered me five pounds to do a similar picture for him. That's when I decided I was going to be a professional artist one day! I nearly always drew in felt tip pens...

My 1 year old can find this book in a pile of books and loves pulling it out, turning the pages and looking at the pictures. Very simple book. Yet she seems to love the rhythm and sound of the words. She particularly likes the frog!
