Description

Once there was a baby in the house - and to that baby, Mum and Dad and Jill and John and Uncle Tom were giants. But little by little, that baby grew up - until she became a giant too! Martin Waddell says of the book, "Small children live in a world designed for big people. I wrote this story to help them understand it, and the idea of growing older."

Author Biography

Born in Belfast, Martin Waddell was an aspiring football player for many years, before turning his hand to writing. He is now widely regarded as one of the greatest living children's writers, and has over 220 published titles to his name. He is perhaps best known for Owl Babies, illustrated by Patrick Benson and Farmer Duck, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury; as well as the 1989 Kurt Maschler Award-winning The Park in the Dark and the Little Bear series, both illustrated by Barbara Firth. In 2004, Martin received the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his lasting contribution to children's literature, the highest career recognition available to a writer or illustrator of children's books. He lives in Newcastle, County Durham. Penny Dale is an internationally renowned, bestselling children's book author and illustrator, whose books include Ten Out of Bed, Ten Play Hide and Seek and Princess, Fairy. She has also illustrated many titles by other authors, including Martin Waddell's Rosie's Babies, which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1990. Penny is married, has a grown-up daughter and a grandson, and lives in South Wales. Find Penny online at www.pennydale.co.uk.
