About Author

Laurence Anholt (Author) Born in 1959 to a Dutch family with Persian roots, Laurence Anholt spent his early years in Holland. He trained as a painter at Falmouth School of Art where he met his wife, the artist, Catherine Anholt. Laurence went on to take a Master's Degree in Fine Art at the Royal Academy in London. The Anholts have produced more than 200 children's books, which have been translated into 30 languages. Their titles have won numerous awards including the Nestle Smarties Gold Award on two occasions. Many of their books are written by Laurence and illustrated by Catherine, but Laurence has written for several other artists including Arthur Robins and Tony Ross, and in addition, he self-illustrates his Anholt's Artists series, an introduction to great art for young children. Random House Penguin will publish Laurence's first full-length novel, The Hypnotist , in 2016. The Anholts have three grown up children; Claire (30) works for the United Nations in New York, and twins, Tom and Maddy (27) are a Berlin based artist and an actor in London. Catherine and Laurence live in an 'upside down' eco-house, surrounded by wildflower meadows overlooking the sea in Devon. Laurence's passions are family, art, travel, books, Buddhism and bees.Catherine Anholt (Illustrator) Born in 1958 to an Irish family, Catherine was one of eight siblings. "We grew up in a tiny village in the Cotswolds," she says. "Just a few miles from where Laurie Lee wrote Cider With Rosie. My mother was a nurse and my father was a potter." It was in this rural setting that Catherine began to work in highly colourful sketchbooks, a habit which continues to the present day. On her degree course at Falmouth School of Art, Catherine met her husband, the artist and writer, Laurence Anholt. Together they moved to London, to take Master's Degrees at the Royal College of Art and the Royal Academy respectively. Over the next 30 years, the Anholts produced more than 200 children's books, which have been translated into 30 languages. Their titles have won numerous awards including the Nestle Smarties Gold Award on two occasions. Catherine and Laurence have three grown up children; Claire (30) works for the United Nations in New York and twins, Tom and Maddy (27) are a Berlin based artist, and an actor in London. Catherine and Laurence live in an 'upside down' house on top of a hill above the sea in Devon, where they keep bees in their wild and rambling garden. Alongside her picture books, Catherine works daily in her studio, producing hundreds of oil paintings, etchings and drawings, some of which can be seen here: http://www.catherineanholt.com
