Janet and Allan Ahlberg - WikipediaJ essica Ahlberg still keeps an old envelope on which is scribbled her dad's acceptance speech. He collected the Kate Greenaway medal on behalf of his wife, Janet, who won the prize in for her illustrations of Each Peach Pear Plum. Janet couldn't go because she had just given birth to Jessica and, with all the pride and joy of a first-time father, Allan Ahlberg finishes the speech by describing their newborn child as "not so much a baby, more a piece of market research". It was a good joke, and if it contains a germ of truth then Jessica, who is 33 and lives in Brighton, doesn't hold it against her dad. There is a frightening evocation of the perils of having a storyteller for a mother in AS Byatt's The Children's Book but growing up with both parents in a hugely successful children's book-creating partnership does not seem to have left Jessica with any scars.
