T. S. Eliot & Arthur Robins
Thomas Stearns Eliot was born in Missouri, in 1888. He came to England in 1914 and published his first book of poems in 1917. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948. Eliot died in 1965.
Arthur is an enormously popular cartoonist and illustrator, who perhaps first came to fame as the illustrator of Michael Rosen’s bestselling Little Rabbit Foo Foo, alongside My Granny Is A Pirate, What Use Is A Moose and plenty of others too numerous to mention. He also produces cartoons for magazines like The Oldie and Saga. Arthur has worked with many of the greats, including Laurence Anholt, Rhonda Armitage and Martin Waddell, and most recently TS Eliot’s Cats bringing these poems to a new generation of picture book readers. His humour and tell-tale wobbly line has rendered these sophisticated texts accessible and intelligible and hugely entertaining for younger readers, achieving over 100k sales.
