About the Author

Raymond Briggs is one of our most respected and beloved artists. Born in Wimbledon Park in 1934, he studied at the Wimbledon School of Art and later at the Slade School of Fine Art, and went on to produce a treasure trove of work. He has created characters that are now icons for generations of children, including Fungus the Bogeyman, Father Christmas and, of course, the beloved Snowman. The biography of his parents in graphic novel form, Ethel & Ernest, became a bestseller in the UK, and an animated feature film based on the novel will be released in 2016.He has won many awards over his career including the Kurt Maschler Award, The Children's Book of the Year, Dutch Silver Pen Award, and the prestigious Kate Greenaway Award twice for his Mother Goose Nursery Treasury and Father Christmas. Raymond lives in Sussex.

Reviews

"Briggs has always had the ability to move his readers, but never more powerfully than this." -- Stephen Pritchard * Guardian * "As our memory of pre-Niketown Britain fades, we should be grateful that Raymond Briggs is so brilliantly equipped to remind us of what we used to be, and why." -- Nick Hornby * New York Times * "Ethel & Ernest imparts, as the best novels do, the sense of lived lives. It's not too much to say you come to love these people... Briggs' book earns our tears. Ethel & Ernest is a just about perfect miniature: small in scale, not in spirit." -- Charles Taylor * Salon *
