About Shoo Rayner & Contact page

Me in my Studio

I have written over 200 books for major international publishers such as Penguin Books, Harper Collins, Hachette, Oxford University Press and many more, and has illustrated over 100 books for other authors including Sir Michel Morpurgo, Rose Impey and Michael Rosen, selling well over 20 million copies worldwide. (I stopped counting around 2011!)

I’ve also made hundreds of how to draw videos. I think that drawing is the basis of written language and has an important role in the development of writing skills, particularly for reluctant writers and readers who tend to be visual thinkers.
