Laugh with Ruffles as he faces all the tricksy troubles of toddler life in this brightly coloured new picture book series.

Ruffles needs a quiet and cosy place to hide from the scary thunderstorm, but nowhere is quite right. Not the chair . . . not the box . . . not the towel . . . not the bucket . . . not the laundry basket . . . and not the mat. Perhaps there's one place where the loud, night noises don't seem so bad. Of course! Ruffles' very own cosy, cosy bed!

Author bio:

David grew up in London with various siblings and a selection of animals (the dog is probably worth a mention). His father was a sculptor and David remembers watching him work and being fascinated as carved faces and figures emerged from blocks of wood and stone. It took him a while to decide what he wanted to do with his pencils (he never stopped drawing), and for a period of time, back in the 1980's, he worked as a cel-renderer and background artist in several animation studios.

By the mid 1990's he began illustrating children's books. In 2001 he wrote and illustrated the first of his own picture books; The Kiss That Missed which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway award. He is probably best known for his Hugless Douglas series. To date he has created around 150 books in over 30 languages.

David lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and two children. Currently, there are no pets to speak of, now he's over the hamster/stick insect phase.
