Mick Manning has been writing and illustrating non-fiction picture books for twenty years, often sharing the illustration with his partner, the illustrator Brita Granström. Their book awards include: The Smarties Silver Award and The English Association Award (which they have won four times: 2000, 2005, 2008 and most recently in 2011 with Taff in the WAAF, the follow-up to their much loved Tail-End Charlie.) They have been nominated for the ALMA prize in both 2013 and 2014 and their most recent books include: The Beatles, Charlie's War Illustrated and Secrets of Stonehenge.
