From a young age, Benji was invariably to be found drawing and painting at the kitchen table, a scene which is often repeated to this day. He is the illustrator of the incredibly successful Bizzy Bear titles, which have been published in 23 languages, and has written a number of recent picture books, including The Storm Whale and Grandad’s Island. He is the winner of the inaugural Oscar’s First Book Prize 2014 and the Sainsbury’s Children’s Book Award 2015. Benji lives in east London with his wife and young daughter.
