Pam Adams was born in 1919 in Swindon, Wiltshire. She was always drawing as a child so Swindon Art College was the natural place to begin her formal art training. In the 50’s and 60’s, following several years at the Central School of Art in London, she worked as a graphic artist for various advertising agencies in the city.

When she returned to Swindon in the 70’s she teamed up with Michael Twinn who had recently founded Child’s Play. Her first book ‘There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly’, published in 1972, is still Child’s Play best selling title.

Her bright, clear colours, appealing shapes and attention to detail make her pictures instantly successful with children.

Pam moved into writing with the ‘Mrs Honey’ series. Her attractive artwork, sense of humour and great versatility made her an invaluble member of the Child’s Play team.

Pam worked for Child’s Play for nearly forty years, illustrating her final book, a prequel to ‘There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly’ in 2006.

Sadly Pam passed away in 2010 at the age of 91.

Teresa Mlawer translated this book into Spanish.

Child's Play is more than just a publishing programme, it is a philosophy. We understand that a child's early years are more important than any other and this is when they learn the most about the world around them. Books play a vital role in building the foundations for learning, and exposure to quality books from an early age helps to develop an enquiring mind and a lifelong love of reading.

Child's Play has a history of creating innovative, award-winning books for children from 0-8 years that promote learning through play – books that fully reflect our diverse society in terms of heritage, disability, gender and family.

Child's Play books are loved by parents, teachers and, most importantly, children all over the world.
