Thomas was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway prize for his second book Little Boat. The Snatchabook, written by wife Helen, grabbed 18 co-editions and won the Oldham Brilliant Books Award. He also illustrates Jenny Colgan’s Polly and the Puffin series. Thomas lives with his wife, and two daughters near Swansea and when he’s not painting you’ll find him searching for the perfect picnic spot...rain or shine!!!
‘Docherty’s watercolor cartoons are quite splendid, especially for the impressive use of lapis blue to set the nocturnal scenes.’
