Lavishly illustrated throughout with sketches from Shirley Hughes' sketchbooks, doodles from boring meetings, roughs from what would later become classic picture books, and perfectly executed paintings done just for the fun of it, this book will be a treasured gift for those who love art and those who have grown up with the enduring characters from Shirley's books. A personal text in the form of a story details her remarkable life as an illustrator.
