Christian Birmingham needs little introduction. The Guardian described him as ‘A modern-day Degas’ and he has been nominated for three prestigious UK illustration awards: the Mother Goose; the Kurt Maschler and the Kate Greenaway. He is particularly admired for his interpretation of the classics – most recently Scholastic’s The Classic Tales of Hans Christian
Andersen was described by Publishing News as ‘A very special book . . . with the wonderful vision of a renowned illustrator.’ He lives in London.
