Anita Jeram was born and brought up in Portsmouth. After school she had a variety of jobs including working in a crisp factory and as a kennel assistant. She did a foundation course in visual studies at Manchester Polytechnic, followed by a degree course in illustration. Her tutor, also an illustrator, took some of her work to Walker Books and her first book, Bill's Belly Button, was published a year after she graduated. Her second book, It Was Jake!, was included on the National Curriculum SAT reading list. Anita is best known for Guess How Much I Love You, which has rapidly become established around the world as a new picture-book classic. Over a million copies were printed in the first year of publication and it was one of the best-selling children's books in both Britain and America. Guess How Much I Love You was shortlisted for the 1994 Kurt Maschler Award and for the Illustrated Children's Books category of the 1994 Bristish Book Awards. Anita particularly enjoys drawing animals and has a menagerie of animals at home including cats, a dog, ducks, chickens and reptiles.
