Shirley Hughes was born and grew up in West Kirby, near Liverpool. She studied at Liverpool Art School and at the Ruskin School of Art in Oxford, before embarking on a career as a freelance illustrator. At first she worked as an interpretive illustrator, but she began to write and design her own picture books when her children were very young. Her first book, Lucy and Tom's Day, was published in 1960.

  I have fond memories of this book as a child. I always wanted to borrow it from the library. I had a toy dog too, an andrex puppy dog called suzie, and i was so scared of loosing her. it is a charming story, written by an author who never fails to delight with her books.
