Shirley Hughes does such a wonderful job capturing the movements and expressions of children. Her main competition on my list is Emily Arnold McCully. I wonder if I could challenge them to a draw-off. Against each other, I mean.
Shirley Hughes is the illustrator of more than two hundred children’s books and has won many prestigious awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal twice. She is the author-illustrator of DON'T WANT TO GO! and OLLY AND ME 1 2 3. She lives in London.More about Shirley Hughes...
