More Information
Kathleen Hale was born in Lanarkshire, United Kingdom, on 24th May 1898, she studied at the Manchester School of Art before winning a scholarship to Reading University. For many years she had to take various jobs in order to survive financially as commissions were few and far between. Eventually though success came in the first cat book, it was immediate and continued unabated for many years. The books still appeal to children and collectors alike with early first editions being particularly sought after.
