About the Author

MICK MANNING and BRITA GRANSTROEM have developed a unique approach to picture information books over the last 21 years. Sharing the illustration between them and mixing words and pictures in inventive ways, they have won many awards, including the Smarties Silver Award, and are five-times winners of the English Association Award. Mick fell in love with wildlife on primary school nature walks many years ago, and has an MA in Natural History Illustration from the Royal College of Art. Brita grew up on a farm, and has an MFA from Konstfack in Stockholm. They spend a lot of their time having both Swedish and British Wild Adventures with their four children. Their other books for Frances Lincoln include: The Beatles; Charles Dickens, Scenes from an Extraordinary Life; What Mr Darwin Saw; Tail-End Charlie; Taff in the WAAF; The Secrets of Stonehenge; Woolly Mammoth; and the Fly on the Wall series: Roman Fort, Viking Longship; Pharoah's Egypt; Greek Hero.

Reviews

'words and illustrations ... have been cleverly combined to bring the story of the Fab Four to life in a way that is both accessible and appealing to children.'


`The book's strength lies in its delightful graphics. The illustrations are lovely and beautifully matched in style to fit the story...the pages burst out into psychedelic colours.'


`Outlined consistently well and with anecdotal incidents that have been thoroughly researched and carefully selected. The illustrations are, as ever, brilliant in a combination of visual quality and information enrichment.'
