In 2006 she was presented with the Hans Christian Andersen medal, which is the highest international recognition granted to authors and illustrators of children's books. Twice winner of the Carnegie Medal, several of her books have become modern classics. Her other picture books for Frances Lincoln include: Dashing Dog, illustrated by Sarah Garland, and Down the Back of the Chair and Bubble Trouble, both illustrated by Polly Dunbar.
