Steven Lenton hails from Cheshire where he spent many a school holiday working in the family Pom-pom Factory, packing poms and designing new products. This somewhat fluffy start to his career did no harm though as since leaving the factory he gained a BA and MA in Animation and has become a successful animator and art director within the realms of children’s television; highlights of which were being part of the BAFTA winning team on ‘The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers’ and co-directing a ‘Teletubby’ pop video. Steven also designs greeting cards and prints, selling them online and in various shops and Fairs around the country.

His main ambition was always to be a children’s book maker and he was very proud to have realized this dream with Nosy Crow and Five Christmas Penguins. His style can be described as charming, contemporary yet warm, with a gentle humor.

In his early thirties,_Lenton lives with his partner Jay and his dog in Crouch End where he dunks endless amounts of hob-nobs (other biscuits are available) in big red spotty cups of tea whilst listening to Radio 2.
