Laurence Anholt has written over seventy books, many in collaboration with his wife Catherine. They are highly regarded in the UK and abroad as a successful author/illustrator team, and have had their books translated into many different languages. They met as undergraduates at Falmouth School of Art, and went on to achieve Master's Degrees from the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal College, respectively. The books which they have collaborated on are based firmly within their own family's experiences, and many of Catherine's illustrations depict scenes which families will recognise. Laurence also writes and illustrates his own books, and has written books with other illustrators, notably the Seriously Silly Stories, illustrated by Arthur Robins. Catherine and Laurence Anholt live in North Devon.
