    DAVID LITCHFIELD first started to draw when he was very young, creating Star Wars and Indiana Jones 'mash up' comics for his older brother and sister. His first picture book with Frances Lincoln Children's Books, The Bear and the Piano , won the Waterstones Children's Book Prize (Illustrated Book Category) and became a best-seller in the UK and US. It was shortlisted for 8 other awards in the UK including the Sheffield Children's Book Award and the Independent Bookshop Week Award, and has sold in over 20 languages. David has since illustrated The Building Boy by Ross Montgomery (Faber & Faber, 2016), and his second book, Grandad's Secret Giant , published in April 2017. David lives in Bedford with his family.
