Biography

Tony Ross was born in 1938 in Wandsworth, South London. He attended Helsby Grammar School and the Liverpool School of Art and Design. He originally wanted to work with horses, but instead worked in teaching and advertising. He also illustrated cartoons for Punch magazine. His artistic career took off when he drew the first Andersen Press book, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, in 1976. Since then, books have been translated into 40 languages in over 100 countries.

He’s best known for The Little Princess. This series has lasted through the generations and has been adapted into a TV series for Channel 5’s Milkshake. He’s also known to slightly older readers for his anarchic and hilarious illustrations for David Walliams’s books. Ross has illustrated all but two of his works, and his art is featured on theatre tours and merchandise accompanying them.

Ross’s has won the Silver Medal Smarties Prize, and his books have been shortlisted for awards, including Laugh Out Loud and the Kate Greenaway Medal. He has been both the best-selling and most-borrowed illustrator in the UK.

Best-Known Books

Horrid Henry’s Cheeky Collection by Francesca Simon contains the first nine Horrid Henry books, as well as Horrid Henry’s Joke Book. Each book is illustrated by Tony Ross, and fit neatly in a box. The series has gone on to become a hit TV series and even a film! This great value box set will keep 7-9-year-olds laughing and demanding more. If younger children who’ve just moved on from picture books want to join in the fun, try the Horrid Henry Early Reader Set, which contains twenty-five books from the series retold using simple language.

This six-book set of Michael Rosen Funny Stories is great for fans of Rosen and Ross alike. From Fluff the Farting Fish to Burping Bertha, these rude but heartwarming stories will delight kids as they devour the whole set! Plus, at these great prices, you can’t afford not to get it.
