More About Roger Priddy
Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification—in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children’s books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK’s Children’s Division and was Managing Director of the children’s mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.
In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin’s Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books—My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends—each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers, and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards.
Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.

Reviews - What do customers think about Baby's Book of Animals?
love this book! Apr 2, 2008
I received this book as a hand-me-down from my sister and after her four kids is was pretty worn out. I have taped almost all of the pages and have even had to throw some away. I am buying a new one becuase my 21 month old LOVES it. The pictures are so wonderful.
My son is crazy about this book! Dec 4, 2000
My ten month old son has a lot of books, but this one is his absolute favorite. A nice way to introduce animals to a little one. I like the way the author sectioned the book into what sounds the animal makes, animal colors, a 'find my animal baby' section, etc. My son loves the beautiful, colorful photos and responds enthusiastically to them. We have three cats at home, and he squeals when he sees the photos of the cats and kittens. He picks this book out of his pile of toys, sits and pages through it, laughing at his favorite animals - the big pages are easy to turn, even for a wee one, and the book lies flat, so he can study the page he wants. But - of course it's not as strong as a board book, and he has destroyed this one - we have to buy another copy because it has fallen apart, and the tape we used to put it back together doesn't let the pages lie flat. Well worth the money though, because he loves the book.
My kid's favorite baby book Jul 27, 1999
Both of my boys have loved this book. I am buying my fourth book now. The animal pictures are large and vibrant, the selection of animals is great. Each page offers a new activity; colors, attributes and Mom to baby connections. Loved it!
