    Stephen Lambert (Illustrator)
    Stephen grew up in Reigate, Surrey and has lived in London, North Yorkshire and currently resides on the edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. After attending Reigate College of Art and Lincoln College of Art, Stephen eventually found himself illustrating for a living.

    For Orchard, Stephen has illustrated The Orchard book of Egyptian Gods and Pharaohs, written by Robert Swindells (July 2003). This is a collection of spellbinding stories from Egyptian mythology and Stephen's stunning illustrations vividly bring to life the drama of this era.

    "A magical title which blends a tremendously strong storyline with the soft tonalities and dreamlike intensity of Stephen Lambert's dramatic artwork." The Bookseller

    "Stephen Lambert's illustrations capture very well both the colours of the desert landscape and the slightly ponderous mystery that hovers over the tales." Times Education Supplement

    Stephen's other books include Nobody Rides the Unicorn (Transworld) which has been shortlisted for the Smarties Award, The Train Ride (Walker Books) and The Secret in the Mist (Gullane).

    When Stephen is not accompanying his dog on walks along the Cornish coastal paths, he is learning to cultivate his garden.
