Babette Cole

Babette Cole was born in Jersey in 1947. Her mother saw the name Babette on a gravestone and liked it! She worked in advertising but didn't enjoy it. She then studied at Canterbury College of Art, where she developed her unusual style of illustration.

After she left college Babette worked on television programmes such as Bagpuss (ask your Mum or Dad about this), before becoming an author. All her books are meant to be fun as she claims she would not know how to write a 'serious' book. Each takes up to 3 months to write an illustrate.
