Born in Hamburg, Germany in 1957, Axel Scheffler moved to England in 1982 and the author, illustrator and animator is now best known for his work with Julia Donaldson on a series of bestselling picture books. The duo first worked together with 1993’s A Squash and A Squeeze and followed this up with many more children’s favourites including the 1999 classic, The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom.
The Gruffalo has now sold over 10 million copies and been adapted into a TV special by the BBC. Known for his bright and distinctive style, Axel was formerly an illustrator for advertising companies, magazines and newspapers.
