SHIRLEY HUGHES was born in West Kirby, near Liverpool, and studied fashion and dress design at Liverpool Art School, before continuing her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. She then embarked on a career as a freelance illustrator in London, where she still lives today. Shirley began to write and draw her own picture books when her children were young, and they include Dogger and the Alfie series. Shirley Hughes has won the Other Award, the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration twice, for Dogger in 1977 and for Ella's Big Chance in 2003. In 2007 Dogger was voted the public's favourite Greenaway winner of all time. Shirley received an OBE in 1999 for services to Children's Literature.Review:
"Tender and enchanting domestic realism in a new smaller scale format" -- Frances Perkins Bournemouth Daily Echo "My Alfie Collection, a boxed set of Shirley Hughes's favourite stories, has four-year-old Alfie and his little sister Annie Rose coping with the small dramas of everyday life. In Alfie Gets in First, he is locked inside with mum outside, and we can see them but they can't see one another - a dramatic moment brilliantly captured" -- Jan Lee Oxford Times
