Books Illustrated & Signed by David Roberts

David Roberts is an award-winning illustrator with an international following. Born in Liverpool he has a degree in fashion design from Manchester Metropolitan University. After university he worked as a milliner and as a fashion illustrator but always felt his true calling was in children's book illustration.

After working as a shelf stacker, egg fryer, hair washer, film extra and coffee-maker David finally realised his dream of becoming a children's book illustrator when his first book Frankie Stein's Robot, written by Roy Apps, was published in 1998 and shortlisted for the Mother Goose Award for emerging illustrators.

Since then he has illustrated works of fiction, poetry, and picture books by authors such as Sally Gardner, Philip Ardagh, Daren King, Julia Donaldson, Jacqueline Wilson, Tom Baker and Chris Priestley, among many others. He is also the creator of Dirty Bertie - a little boy with bad habits.
