Born in Norfolk, England, but raised in Wales, THOMAS TAYLOR studied illustration at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. His first commissioned work was the cover illustration for the British edition of a then-unknown book called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling. Since then Thomas has written and illustrated many children’s picture books. He lives in Normandy, France, where he shamelessly steals story ideas from his two little boys, Max and Benjy.
