    Anita Jeram Biography
    Anita Jeram is a children's book illustrator best known for illustrating the beloved Guess How Much I Love You picture book which is a world bestseller and was shortlisted for the 1994 Kurt Maschler Award. 

    Born in 1965 in Portsmouth, Anita loved drawing and animals as a child, she would draw on any paper she could find. After leaving school she worked in a variety of jobs including in a crisp factory, numerous shops and as a kennel assistant (her favourite job!).

Whilst at university, one of her tutors introduced her to the people at Walker Publishing who signed her up for her first picture book. Bill's Belly Button was published a year after she graduated.

    Anita now lives in Northern Ireland with her husband, three children and menagerie of animals.
