Anthony Browne

Anthony Browne is a British author and illustrator whose captivating works such as
"Into the Forest," "Zoo", and "My Dad" have enthralled children for over 30 years.
Browne was born on September 11, 1946, in Sheffield, United Kingdom. When he was younger, he enjoyed drawing with his father, and when he became older, he illustrated medical textbooks, but grew bored with the monotony. He designed greeting cards for fifteen years, then discovered his passion in writing and illustrating. His first book, "The Magic Mirror," debuted in 1976, and he has been writing and illustrating children's books ever since. He's written over 40 books, and received the Children's Laureate Award from 2009-2011.
