In 1986 Paul met the editor, Ron Heapy, at Oxford University Press, who looked at his work and commissioned him to draw several pictures for a short book about a witch written by Valerie Thomas as part of OUP's Reading Tree programme. [5] Paul liked the story enough to turn it into a complete picture book. Although this was not strictly within Paul's brief, Heapy nevertheless presented it to the OUP delegates. The resulting book, Winnie the Witch, went on to win the Red House Children's Book Award in 1988 and has since been published in over 10 languages. [6] Paul's illustrations for this are full of visual jokes and witty detail. [7] Since then he has illustrated a further nineteen Winnie the Witch titles that have sold over 7 million copies. [5] [1] [6] Paul lives in Oxford and is married to the artist Susan Moxley. Together they have two children, Oska and Zoë. [6]

Valerie Thomas, Winnie in Winter (Oxford University Press) 1996, shortlisted for the Children's Book Award I read this book to my year 2 class and they loved it! They all became immersed into the story and loved to look at the pictures. The book also has a rhyming scheme and I find that this is definitely something that the children enjoy as they like to read along with the story. After the story we all engaged in a conversation about what ingredients we would include to make our own rascally cake!Paul, Korky (24 March 2015).
