Anthony Browne

What are your earliest childhood memories?

For the first five years of my life we lived in a pub and I dimly remember going into the bar, standing on a table and telling stories to the customers. The stories were about a character I invented called Big Dumb Tackle.

In the early days, did you feel encouraged to mark make?

Yes, I was encouraged all through my childhood by my parents to draw and paint.

What do you remember about reading as a child?

I read a lot of comics (words and pictures) and later on I loved the Just William books by Richmal Crompton.
