Eve Sutton

Born on 14th September 1908, Lancashire, England

Died 19th December 1992, Auckland, New Zealand

Eve’s first children's book, My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes, was written after her cousin by marriage, Lynley Dodd, suggested that they work on a book together; Sutton wrote the text and Dodd provided the illustrations. Now regarded as a New Zealand classic, it was Sutton's only picture book, and it received the Esther Glen Award (New Zealand) in 1975
