As her astonishing track record of award wins and short-listings for national prizes attest, Caryl Hart is now a firmly established talent in the picture book arena. She is also a regular and popular visitor to schools and festivals.
Caryl is a remarkably versatile author writing successfully in both rhyme and prose, and for a range of ages from toddler and picture books, to young fiction. Her characters are brilliantly observed and her plots clever and full of fun.
The creator of several bestselling series in both the home and international markets, her titles include: How to Catch A Dragon (Simon & Schuster), The Princess and the Presents (Nosy Crow) Whiffy Wilson: The Wolf Who wouldn’t go to School (Orchard) and the Foxy Tales series (Hodder).
Caryl lives in the Peak District with her husband and two daughters. Her favourite word is “snuggle” and her favourite place is the library because it's warm and full of books.
