Rob Biddulph

Once upon a time Rob Biddulph was the art director of the Observer Magazine but, by night, he made up silly stories for his three daughters and drew pictures to go with them. Now, making up those silly stories and the pictures that go with them is how Rob makes a living! He writes and illustrates his own picture books and has illustrated many books by other writers. Rob is this year’s official World Book Day illustrator.
