Biographical Sketch

Nora Spicer Unwin was born in Surbiton, Surrey, England in 1907 and studied at art schools and colleges in England. She worked as a teacher in England and the United States, but most of her career has been as a professional artist and author/illustrator of children's books. The majority of her books are picture books because she believes she has the most scope for illustrations with that type of book.
