Edward Ardizzone

About the Author:
Edward Ardizonne came to England with his family at the age of five. It was these early years, when young Edward and his cousin would skip off from home to spend long days in the docks, that inspired the first Tim book, written by the artist for his own children many years later. Throughout his
lifetime, Ardizzone won many awards for his work, including the very first Kate Greenaway Medal for Tim All Alone. He is now regarded as one of the finest children's illustrators of all time. Oxford was the original publisher of the first Tim book in 1936. Now, in these new paperback editions,
Ardizonne's classic tales of Tim and his adventures by the sea have been reset and each given a fresh, newly designed cover, bringing Ardizonne, yet once again, to a whole new generation of children.
