update 27/07/2016: I just finish reading this book. And it's one of the best biographies I have ever read. Shirley Hughes opens her world to us! Her personal life (not too much, the right amount), the relationships between an author, an illustrator, a reader (children and their parents), sketchbooks, her work, her advices too us!
It felt like we meet for a cuppa and we had a lovely, warm conversation.
