Worst of all, they want to play with Big Blue Blankie, and Ruffles doesn't want to share. But the Teeny Tiny Kittens don't understand and there's trouble when Big Blue Blankie is accidentally ripped. Luckily, Ruffles' new feline friends show him that sharing together is the very best way to make friends and play.

David grew up in London with various siblings and a selection of animals (the dog is probably worth a mention). His father was a sculptor and David would often gawp in wonderment at how faces would slowly emerge from blocks of wood, sheets of metal or bits of plastic. It took him a while to decide what he wanted to do with his pencils (he never stopped drawing), and for a period of time, back in the 1980's, he worked as a cel-renderer and background artist in several animation studios. By the mid 1990's he began illustrating children's books. In 2001 he wrote and illustrated the first of his own picture books; The Kiss That Missed which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway award. He is probably best known for his Hugless Douglas series. To date he has created around 150 books in over 30 languages. David lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and two children. Currently, there are no pets to speak of, now he's over the hamster/stick insect phase.
