    Mike Smith graduated with distinction from the MA Children's Book Illustration course at Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University. He is a winner of the illustrious Macmillan Prize for Children's Picture Book Illustration. When he was a child, Mike's favourite illustrators were Herge, Charles Schultz and Richard Scarry, all of whom still influence his work today. Mike and his partner Caroline lived on a canal boat in Cambridge for seven years, but they have now swapped their boat for a house in Leicestershire, where they live happily with their two sons and their dogs. The Hundred Decker Bus is Mike's debut picture book.
