Nick Sharratt

Nick Sharratt was our author of the Spring Term 2014


Nick Sharratt was born in London in 1962, he is a British illustrator and author of children's books, and was chosen to be the Official Illustrator for World Book Day 2006. Sharratt has illustrated around 200 books, including over 40 books by award-winning author Jacqueline Wilson, among them The Lottie Project, Little Darlings and The Story of Tracy Beaker which was the most borrowed library book in the UK for the first decade of this century. The books on which they have collaborated have sold more than 30 million copies in the UK and sales of picture books illustrated by Nick exceed 9 million.


Nick grew up in Suffolk, Nottinghamshire and Manchester and was trained in graphic design at St Martins School of Art. He takes his inspiration from the pop and graphic art of the 1960s, which he experienced as a child. His work is split between illustrating for other writers, most notably Jacqueline Wilson and Jeremy Strong as well as Kes Gray, Giles Andreae, Julia Donaldson and Michael Rosen, and producing his own picture books for a younger audience.
