Adam Stower achieved a first class honours degree in Illustration from Norwich School of Art, followed by a Masters in Narrative Illustration from the University of Brighton.
Adam has a rich imagination and loves fantasy and adventure stories. He wrote and illustrated SLAM! – a tale of consequences – which won the Norfolk Library Silver Award for Children’s Books. He also illustrated the popular series by Timothy Knapman featuring Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates, Spiders From Space and Dinosaur Island (Puffin). Other picture book projects include exciting collaboration with renowned children’s book author, Jeanne Willis – Bottoms Up (winner of the Red House Children’s Book Award 2010) and the sequel, Sing a Song of Bottoms (shortlisted for the Early Years Award 2010).
His gorgeous picture book Silly Doggy! (Templar) has been longlisted for the Kate Greenaway and the follow up Naughty Kitty! (publication 2012) is just as clever with a twist in the tale.
Adam is well known for his cover artwork and strong black and white inside illustrations, including the series, Spymice (Puffin), The Dragon's of Wayward Crescent (Orchard) and The Secret Army (Faber and Profile Books).
