Tomi Ungerer, born in Strasbourg in 1931, landed in New York in 1956 with $60 in his pocket and with a suitcase full of drawings. Overnight he became a star as a caricaturist, illustrator and children’s book author and published more than 80 books in ten years. As a graphic artist he created advertising campaigns for Willy Brandt and The New York Times. In 1998, Tomi Ungerer was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Award for illustration and has become an internationally renowned artist. He now divides his time between Strasbourg and Ireland.

"It's marvellous and it's cuckoo and it's that kind of veracity that's always made for good children's literature."—Maurice Sendak on Tomi Ungerer's work

"Tomi Ungerer has been proving the pen is mightier than the sword for six decades - [a] style marked by great originality of illustrative technique, and a use of language that refused to patronise his young readers."—John Dunnng, Dazed & Confused
