He lives in North Yorkshire, England.From School Library Journal:
reSchool-After a long week of work, a father returns home Friday evening to his sleeping family. He lets the cat into the house and the two have some milk before heading upstairs. The youngest family member is awake and the attentive father cuddles and comforts his baby, talking to the infant as he checks in on his sleeping son and his wife. Tiptoeing downstairs, he relaxes in a chair and sings a song (to the tune of "Rock-a-bye Baby") to his baby, lulling them both to sleep. ("Daddy will love you and sing you to sleep-.") This slice of life is simply told and depicted in softly rendered, realistic paintings across spreads that capture the quiet of a sleeping household and a father's tenderness. Night-sky endpapers with golden stars set the stage for the evening's interaction. Libraries will want to add this lovely title to their collections.
