Roger Priddy is the creator of over two hundred best selling books for young children including Wipe Clean ABC, First 100 Words, and Fuzzy Bee.When he was at school he couldn't decide between being a patisserie chef or going to art college. On the advice of his father he chose art college and trained as an illustrator before becoming a designer at Usborne Publishing.Roger's love for children's early learning has led him to create some of the most successful children's non-fiction books, first at Dorling Kindersley (My First Word Book, Incredible Cross Sections and My First Cook Book) before he set up Priddy Books with St. Martins Press in New York where several of his books have sold over a million copies each including My Big Animal Book and Happy Baby Words. In total he has sold over 65 million books worldwide and his books have been translated into over 30 languages.He says "It is always rewarding to see a child enjoying and learning something from one of our books, especially the babies when you think it could be the first book they have ever seen. I am very lucky to have a career where you get to think up fun ways to teach a kid how to write their letters and learn their first words whilst finding out about Dinosaurs at the same time!"Roger lives in London and has three children, who have given him most of his best ideas for his books.

Plus, now it will be much easier for his little hands to open the flaps since I have already "broken...

This is a really sweet book about the love and feeling of completeness a special someone can bring to your life, whether a child, lover, or friend. I love that cats were generously represented in the illustrations, too! Only awarding four stars, though, due to my general discomfort with the idea tha...

Very adorable book.
Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
I remember back in the days that I was a wee toddler (okay, I was a little older than 2, but you know what I mean) my dad had purchased a computer called a 'Sorcerer' which he would use when he wasn't at work (because even though he was an engineer, he would come home and fiddle with electronics and...
