About the Author: Simon Drew

Simon Drew (born October 9, 1952) is an English illustrator and cartoonist, noted for his quirky punning captions, often featuring animals which he draws in a fine pen-and-ink style.

He was educated at Bradfield College, Berkshire, and then studied zoology at Exeter University before going on to train as a teacher at Reading University. He spent five years teaching at a West Sussex school and while there spent his spare time drawing.

In 1981 he and his wife established an art gallery in Dartmouth, Devon, to sell his own work and that of studio potters. The gallery has since been listed by the Crafts Council as one of the 54 best in the country.

He continues to work, mainly in pen and ink, making still life compositions from everyday objects, birds and animals.

His first book 'A Book of Bestial Nonsense' was published in 1986 and since then he has written and illustrated more than 20.

He has exhibited locally and in Cape Cod, USA, and his pictures, limited edition prints and cards are bestsellers.

This may well be an address book but it is certainly unlike any other. Profusely illustrated throughout in full colour, it contains a delicious selection of Simon Drew's highly idiosyncratic drawings and accompanying written captions. Throughout this book there are countless distractions: this means that as you look up an address you will find yourself amazed at the drawings and quirky words and will soon discover that you have forgotten what you were doing in the first place. What could be more surprising than finding a mole wandering across Auntie Flo's address? Or maybe an earthworm writhing past a telephone number? Gifted with a quirky sense of fun and a lively imagination, Simon Drew interprets conventional words and phrases, situations and circumstances in pictures and prose. It is an address book designed to delight all those who enjoy verbal and pictorial puns.
