About the Author

Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification—in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator.  His first job in childrens books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DKs Childrens Division and was Managing Director of the childrens mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.
In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martins Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books—My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends—each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.

This is a great board book of its type. My grandaughter, age one, has spent a lot of time with this book. The pictures are captivating for little ones- very clear against a white background. The different textures are fun, too. The pages are very sturdy and easy for little hands to turn. The large size is also a plus.
