About David McKee

David is the creator of several well-known characters including King Rollo and Mr Benn. His most famous creation is Elmer the Patchwork Elephant which is now published in more than 40 languages and has its own successful global merchandise programme. David McKee was born in Devon and went to Plymouth Art College, where he had a traditional training. On leaving college he drew regularly for, among others, Punch, Reader's Digest, and The Times Educational Supplement. His drawings were influenced especially by Saul Steinberg and Andre Francois. David's first picture book was one of the stories he had told at college, Two Can Toucan. This was published by Abelard-Schuman in 1964 and the version David re-illustrated in 1985 was re-issued in 2001 by Andersen Press. David has written and illustrated over 50 picture books for Andersen Press including 24 original Elmer stories. David lives in Arles, France

Review quote

"Unquestionably the life and soul of the party. I loved this book from the first time I read it." Exepose "Its message of celebrating diversity and uniqueness is just as topical today as it was when celebrated author David McKee first created Elmer." Junior Magazine "A deserved favourite with the 2-5s." The Sunday Times "A wonderfully upbeat and powerful tale that celebrates the uniqueness of the individual - and provides one of literature's best-loved characters too." Junior "A celebration of individuality and laughter." Publishers Weekly
