Play and learn with Bizzy Bear!
Camilla Reid has written, conceived and edited children's books for over twenty years. Her titles for Nosy Crow as an in-house author include the Pip and Posy series (illustrated by Axel Scheffler), the Bizzy Bear series, (illustrated by Benji Davies), and the Felt Flaps series, (illustrated by Ingela P Arrhenius). Her titles for other publishers include The Littlest Dinosaur and the Naughty Rock (illustrated by Michael Foreman, Bloomsbury), the Seriously Cute series (illustrated by Katherine Lodge, Bloomsbury) and the Lulu series, (illustrated by Ailie Busby, Bloomsbury).
From a young age, Benji was invariably to be found drawing and painting at the kitchen table, a scene which is often repeated to this day. He is the illustrator of the incredibly successful Bizzy Bear titles, which have been published in 23 languages, and has written a number of recent picture books, including The Storm Whale and Grandad's Island. He is the winner of the inaugural Oscar's First Book Prize 2014 and the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award 2015. Benji lives in east London with his wife and young daughter.
