About the Author
Jan PieĊ„kowski is a household name to children of more than one generation. He left his native Poland together with his parents during the 2nd World War and lived in Bavaria and Italy before coming to England in 1946, when he was 10 years old.

Jan was educated first at Lucton School, Herefordshire, as a boarder, which gave him a chance to learn English (in self defence), and subsequently at the Cardinal Vaughan, London, which gave him a chance to learn Greek and Latin and was a gateway to Kings’ College, Cambridge. While there, he developed artistic skills by designing theatre posters and sets for university productions. He also attended a regular life drawing class and has gone on drawing from life ever since.

After taking his degree, he started his artistic career in advertising design, greeting cards, and drawing live on BBC television as part of a popular children’s programme. He was soon discovered by the London book world and snapped up by art directors, first for covers and subsequently for children’s book illustration. It was telling stories in pictures that became his life's work.
