About the Author

Axel Scheffler was born in Hamburg, Germany. At school he was good at art, but didn’t think of a career in illustration until he won a cuddly purple cow in a drawing competition. He moved to England to learn English and study illustration at the Bath Academy of Art and then set up home in London. He is the author-illustrator of the Pip and Posy series, Flip Flap Farm, and Flip Flap Safari, and has illustrated a number of books, including Julia Donaldson’s best-selling modern classic, The Gruffalo, which has sold millions of copies worldwide.

Praise For Higgly Hen: A Farm Friends Sound Book

Scheffler, of The Gruffalo fame, uses richly colored gouache to paint scenes with friendly, wide-eyed farm residents against pastoral backgrounds...The art and writing can stand on their own.
