Steve Antony is a highly talented and versatile author-illustrator. He has had a passion for storytelling from an early age, but it was the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge that really enabled him to channel this passion. Since embarking on the MA course, he has enjoyed creating picture books on a range of subjects from the Queen’s hat to a war between rectangles and lizards! He aims to create picture books that are slightly ‘off the wall’, books that children will laugh at and adults will tweet about, but most of all, books that he enjoys.
