Edward Ardizzone was born on October 16, 1900, the eldest of five children. In 1905 his family moved to Ipswich, England, where they lived until Ardizzone was fourteen. He later wrote that "it was here that I learnt to know and love the little coastal steamers that I have drawn so often in the Tim books."
The beloved illustrator of more than 170 books, Mr. Ardizzone was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1956 and the CBE (Commander of the British Empire) in 1971. The adventures of Tim are firm favorites with readers young and old throughout the world. Mr. Ardizzone died in 1979.Review:
Selected as one of Shirley Hughes's Top 5 Picture Books: 'Ardizzone is one of my heroes, a storyteller in the finest English tradition. As an illustrator he can open up vistas, seascapes, storms and beach walks using pen and wash with effortless mastery. A large part of Little Tim's enduring appeal is that he has amazing adventures without any anxious grown-ups tagging along. But there is always a cosy welcome waiting on his return.'
