Hervé Tullet was born in 1958. After studying Fine Art, he worked as an Art Director before joining the advertising industry. In 1994 he published his first book for children and has since become one of the world's most innovative book makers. Known in France as "The Prince of pre-school books", Tullet takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively. He is the father of two boys and a girl, who never fail to inspire him.

…[I] have fallen in l.o.v.e. with the series of art books for kids by Hervé Tullet. The latest book, the big book of art, is perhaps my favorite. As the name indicates it's a huge book with heavy printed pages that flip in different sections to create delightful compositions. This is perfect for pre-schoolers who are just getting the hang of drawing…
