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.
