|About the Book|
Val Biro (pronounced Beer-oh) (born October 6, 1921), childrens author, artist and illustrator, was a native of Hungary, but is now resident in Sussex in England. He received his education in Budapest and London. His studio is located in Amersham in Buckinghamshire.I write so as to give my alter-ego a good chance for drawing pictures, though I find that the story I invent tends to run away with itself, leaving me, the illustrator, behind! Each story tends to be based on personal experience and, equally, each tends to grow out of that into the imagination. Each book seems to take a few months to gestate, and then I write it in one long day (or night).
