Mike Alan Philips is a British illustrator of children's books. He is mainly involved in books with humorous and tongue-in-cheek fun facts with a focus on the trivial, unusual, gory, or unpleasant. He made the cartoons and comic segments for several books in Terry Deary's 'Horrible Histories' series, that give a sarcastic and yet educational look on periods of history. With a style resembling that of the series' main illustrator, Martin Brown, Philips has made the drawings for installments about the cities of York (2005), Edinburgh (2005) and Dublin (2006). Other artists who illustrated the 'Horrible Histories' series are Philip Reeve and Kate Sheppard. He is also the artist of the spin-off series 'Horrible Geography' by Anita Ganeri (since 1999) and of 'Foul Football' by Michael Coleman (since 2000).
