Chris Riddell is familiar to both children and adults for his distinctive line drawings with their clever caricature, fascinating detail and often enchanting fantasy elements. He studied illustration at Brighton Polytechnic and has illustrated several picture books including Something Else by Kathryn Cave, which was shortlisted for the Smarties Prize and which won the Unesco Award. The Swan’s Stories by Brian Alderson was shortlisted for the 1997 Kurt Maschler Award and Pirate Diary won the 2001 Kate Greenaway Medal. In addition to his children’s book work, Chris is a renowned political cartoonist whose work appears regularly in Great Britain’s The Observer, The Literary Review and The New Statesman.
