About this book

What do you get if you cross an elephant with a lion? Why, that would be a elephon! And a zebra with a crocodile? That would be a zebodile, of course! A very silly but absolutely compelling book that will charm the whole family. "My mane is thick, my teeth are sharp – I am a might beast Be careful not to cross my path, or you might be my feast!"

Age Level: 18 months to 5 years

Axel was born in Hamburg, Germany. At school he was good at art, but didn't think of a career in illustration until he won a cuddly purple cow in a drawing competition. He moved to England in 1982 to learn English and study illustration at the Bath Academy of Art and then set up home in London. Axel illustrated a number of books for various publishers, and in 1993 Kate suggested him as the illustrator for Julia Donaldson's first picture book text, A Squash and a Squeeze. This was the start of a hugely successful partnership. Axel lives in London with his partner and their daughter.
