Tony Ross

Tony Ross is one of the most popular and successful of all children’s illustrators. Born in London in 1938, he never thought he’d be an artist, but he says he “fell in to it” when his dreams of being a cowboy fell through after John Wayne failed to answer his letter of application. Tony has illustrated more than 800 books, and as well as drawing all of the fantastic pictures for the Horrid Henry story books, he has illustrated books for many other authors, including Roald Dahl, Michael Palin and Paula Danziger. He also finds time to write and illustrate his own books.
