An overview of the life and work of much-loved children's illustrator and author Judith Kerr, creator of classics such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and Mog.

A thoughtful and intimate portrait, this book is not only a celebration of Judith Kerr's classic work, but a record of the hard work, development and serious intent behind it. Referencing Kerr's biographical novels, Joanna Carey introduces us to the illustrator as she goes about her daily life, showing us into her studio, exploring her materials, her relationship with her publisher and editors, and her reflections over the years. Drawing on a great range of previously unpublished visual material, we see behind the scenes of Kerr's unforgettable creations.
