Author(s): Axel Scheffler
Join Pip and Posy as they have fun in the park, nibble on some snacks, play with their train set, and share a bath at the end of the day. With busy scenes and a 'Can you find these things?' panel at the bottom of each spread - to encourage the reader to spot the objects within the scenes - this book will keep very youngest of readers occupied for hours.
Axel was born in Hamburg, Germany. At school he was good at art, but didn't think of a career in illustration until he won a cuddly purple cow in a drawing competition. He moved to England in 1982 to learn English and study illustration at the Bath Academy of Art and then set up home in London. Axel illustrated a number of books for various publishers, and in 1993 Kate suggested him as the illustrator for Julia Donaldson's first picture book text, A Squash and a Squeeze. This was the start of a hugely successful partnership. Axel has illustrated a number of other highly successful books, including Muddle Farm, and his books have been translated into 42 languages. Axel lives in London with his partner and young daughter.
