A celebrated author and illustrator, best-known for his daring and emotionally complex work for children, Raymond Briggs began his career in advertising before beginning to illustrate children’s books.
He first came to public attention when he won a Kate Greenaway Award for his illustrations for The Mother Goose Treasury in 1966. He followed this with collaborations with popular authors including his work with Allan Ahlberg and his illustrations for Elfrida Vipont’s The Elephant and the Bad Baby, before beginning to write and illustrate his own works for children.
Amongst his best-loved stories, many of which have been adapted for television, are the seasonal classics, Father Christmas and The Snowman as well as Fungus the Bogeyman. Briggs also writes and illustrates for adults and won critical acclaim for his 1982 work, When the Wind Blows, a poignant and powerful graphic novel about the consequences of nuclear war.
