Ed Vere studied fine art at Camberwell College of Art and has been writing and illustrating children’s books since 1999. He is published in both England and the US. Ed is also a painter, working from his studio in east London, and is represented by galleries in London and Los Angeles. After a year and a half living in Barcelona, Ed now lives and works in London.
Mr Big is strong, Mr Big is tough, Mr Big is . . . well . . . BIG! He has just one small problem – because of the way he looks he just can’t get people to stick around.
How can he show them that although he may look a little scary, he is just a great big softy inside?
With his trademark bold colour and masterful graphic simplicity, Ed Vere sensitively and humorously tackles the universal and current subject of inclusion, reminding the reader that to get to know someone you need to look beyond their exterior. This is the third picture book from an exciting new talent, whose previous titles The Getaway and Banana have received great critical acclaim.
