More About the Author

Tim Hopgood is an award-winning picture book author and illustrator.

His first book,'Our Big Blue Sofa' won the Cambridgeshire 'Read It Again!' Award in 2007. This was followed by 'A Dog Called Rod' which was shortlisted for the Red House Children's Book of the Year Award 2008 and the British Book Design Awards 2007. In 2008, Tim won the Booktrust Early Years Award for Best Emerging Illustrator for 'Here Comes Frankie!', which was also nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Tim's first book for younger readers,'Wow! Said The Owl' was shortlisted for the Booktrust Early Years Award 2009 and was his first book to be published in the USA. Tim's latest book, 'What A Wonderful World' is a picture book version of the song made famous by Louis Armstrong.

In an interview with Madelyn Travis, for Booktrust, Tim says "When I'm writing, I like to work in silence, but when I'm drawing and painting I listen to music played loud on my old stereo. Two of my favourite albums to work to are 'Kind of Blue' by Miles Davies and 'Songs In The Key of Life' by Stevie Wonder."

Format: Paperback
We just bought this book last week for our eldest for our holiday- and already it's gone down a treat. Tim Hopgood has an eye for what children love to read about, and Thank-You For Looking After Our Pets is looking to be a summer favourite. Love the clever pet names and bright colours- Tim Hopgood's illustrations tap into children's imaginations and it's great to see them wondering what their pets could be up to while we're on our holiday! Wonderful.

A lovely, colourful fun book that I think is a lovely present to give my neighbours - they have four children aged 2 to 8 - for feeding my bunnies whilst I was away over Christmas.
