Yuval Zommer graduated from London’s Royal College of Art with an MA in Illustration. He has worked as a creative director at many leading advertising agencies. Luckily for us, his passion for picture books has now won, and he is the author/illustrator of highly acclaimed children’s books.

Yuval's characterful canine adventure picture books One Hundred Bones and One Hundred Sausages are published by Templar. His highly acclaimed non-fiction large format title The Big Book of Bugs (Thames and Hudson, 2016) has been published in seventeen languages and is followed by the equally stunning Big Book of Beasts (Thames and Hudson, March 2017). Yuval is currently illustrating the eagerly awaited third title in the series,  Big Book of the Blue which will publish next year. Yuval has also illustrated The Street Beneath My Feet (Quarto, 2017), an exciting foldout book exploring our underground worlds.
