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 - Albie (Simon & Schuster) now features in 11 picture books, whilst her Princess series (Nosy Crow) includes 5 title - she is much sought after.
Now her own daughters are entering young adulthood, Caryl has been inspired to move up the age range and is currently working on her first novel for young adults.
Recent titles include Girls Can do Anything (Scholastic), Peter Pan (Nosy Crow) and Knock Knock Alien (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.
