Hervé Le Goff was born in 1971 in the Côtes d’Armor area of Brittany.
After obtaining a diploma in fine arts, Le Goff began work at a Parisian publishing house, where his first assignment was to illustrate a Hachette encyclopedia for young readers.
His first book was released through the publisher “Editions du Père Castor Flammarion”, with whom he released several works, including: “Lou la Brebis” (Lou the Ewe), “Le Serpent à Fenêtres” (Window Snake) and “L’épouvantail qui voulait voyager” (The Scarecrow that Wanted to Travel).
Following the release of several publications with Milan, Magnard, Gautier Languereau, l’Ecole des Loisirs and Fleurus, Le Goff worked with numerous children’s book editors (Milan, Bayard, Fleurus Presse) to develop different visuals for objects and toys designed for children. Many of his works have been translated into several languages.
Since 2008, he has been working with author Christine Beigel on the popular work “Mamie Poule raconte” (Mamie Poule Tells a Story), a collection of humoristic short stories, such as “La vache qui voulait éteindre la lune” (The Cow that Wanted to Turn Off the Moon) and “Le pingouin qui avait froid aux pattes” (The Penguin that had Cold Feet).
In 2015, with author Alexandre Jardin, Le Goff illustrated 12 books of fairy tales revisited for McDonald’s restaurants.
