Read information about the authorSteve Antony is a writer and illustrator based in the UK. His current titles include, 'The Queen's Hat', 'Betty Goes Bananas' and 'Please, Mr. Panda'.
His bestselling UK debut, 'The Queen's Hat', published in May 2014 to critical acclaim. It was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal and has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
The New York Times wrote that 'Betty Goes Bananas' "speaks to the foot-stamping toddler in all of us." and 'Please, Mr. Panda' has "a deceptively simple premise with surprise and visual interest."
'Please, Mr. Panda', was The Times Children's Book of the Week and Barnes & Noble's Picture Book of the Month. On Jan 10th, 'Please, Mr. Panda' was read in every Barnes & Noble store in the States as part of their first nationwide Storytime event. School Library Journal calls it "A fun story time selection and a solid option for parents or teachers."
Born in England and raised in Alamogordo, New Mexico, Steve was the 'British kid that liked to draw'. Upon his family's return to the UK, at age 16, he was too young to have graduated from high school and too old to take his GCSE's. However, his artwork and US grades secured him a spot at art college in Cirencester. He went on to study art at Swindon College and graduated with a HND in Illustration. Steve worked in a call centre for nine years while pursuing creative career opportunities. After being made redundant in 2010, Steve took a 'leap of faith' by applying for a place on the Masters Degree in Children's Book Illustration course in Cambridge. He graduated in 2013. Shortly afterwards, he signed his first book contract.
