He recently won the illustration section of the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award for his services to children's literature. He lives with this family in Kent.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3-Browne's first pop-up is a colorful, if sometimes enigmatic, interpretation of the popular nonsense song. At the animal fair, the big baboon, along with a host of ghosts and other creatures, lurks behind a dozen flaps on the Haunted House; carousel horses change to human figures with the pull of a tab; and the elephant's spread-filling sneeze sends the hapless (but sober, in this version of the lyrics) monkey soaring up almost half a foot. Most of the effects are standard issue, and won't survive rough handling, but there's enough variety in the moving parts to hold the attention of school-aged children, while the plethora of flaps will keep younger ones enthralled. And, of course, there are apes to discover on every spread.
