Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chris Riddell (born 1962) is a British illustrator (and occasional writer) of children's literature, and a political cartoonist for The Observer. He has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice and the Nestl Smarties Book Prize seven times. Chris Riddell was born in 1962 in South Africa where his father worked as a vicar and was opposed to the system of apartheid. The family returned to England when Chris was one year old, where he spent the rest of his childhood with his sister and three brothers who are now living in South Africa, Egypt and Malaysia. Chris displayed artistic talent from an early age, and was encouraged in this by his mother. As a child, his favourite artists were John Tenniel (the original illustrator of Lewis Carroll's book Alice in Wonderland) and William Heath Robinson.
