“Growing up in Ipswich, England, Helen Oxenbury loved nothing more than drawing. . . .  After marrying John Burningham, another of the world’s most eminent children’s book illustrators, and giving birth to their first child . . . she turned to illustrating children’s books. . . . Today, Helen is among the most popular and critically acclaimed illustrators of her time. Her numerous books for children include the Kate Greenaway Medal-winning Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll; Smarties Book Prize-winning Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell; We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen; Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, written by Mem Fox, as well as her classic board books for babies.” (Walker Books)
