Russell Ayto

Sorry for a poor quality picture, but I couldn't find better one. You can still see that he is lovely!

Russell was born in Chichester, Sussex and brought up in Oxfordshire. At school he loved both drawing and sciences and once thought about becoming a zoologist. He has worked in a medical laboratory and as as postman, but his favourite job is being an artist! The thing he loves best is the chance to be creative and use his imagination to make characters come to life. He has illustrated many picture books and been shortlisted for the Nestle Award, the Mother Goose Award and the Blue Peter Book Awards, and won the 2008 inaugural Roald Dahl Funny Prize for the Witch's Children go to School.

Here are some of his illustrations! Aren't they hilarious?!
