Product Description

Review

"Giles is an extremely popular winner across the generations. His books are still selling well after more than 50 years and his humour is not stuck in any particular time frame. He appeals to a very wide cross-section of the public" - Paul Gravett, Projects Director of the British Cartoon Trust.

About the Author

Carl Giles was born in Islington, north London, on 29 September 1916. Leaving school aged fourteen, his early training was in animation, eventually moving into cartoons working for Reynolds News. In 1943 Giles moved to the Sunday Express and Daily Express, eventually replacing Strube and becoming the Daily Express "War Correspondent Cartoonist" with the 2nd Army in 1945. Best known for his Express "family", his cartoons had enormous popular appeal and in 1959 he was awarded the OBE. Giles left the Daily Express in 1989 but continued working for the Sunday Express until 1991. He passed away in hospital in Ipswich on 27 August 1995.
