About the Author

John trained in typography and book design at the Harris College in Preston, Lancashire, UK and worked briefly as a designer for a couple of publishers in London, England. He did various jobs to earn a living, whilst writing and illustrating his own children's books and trying to get published. John's first self-authored illustrated children's book was published in 1980 - The Seasons in Fern Hollow. Since then he has had more than 100 titles published in many countries around the world and translated into many languages - including his retellings of many of the classic fairy tales by Hans Andersen, the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault and others. John has written, designed and illustrated both flat books and pop-up books including doing the paper engineering.


"I read the Brass Band Robbery to my kids tonight and have been reading the bedtime book during the past week. A new generation is thoroughly enjoying your work! You really have created master pieces in each one of those books!"

Will Michael, the CT Naturalist, Connecticut, USA.

"Thank you for sharing your talent for writing and illustrating with me, a little girl from Canada who learned to love reading because of Fern Hollow. I am grateful to you for the magic those books brought, and continue to bring, to my life and to that of my children."

V.R., Tampa, Florida.

"Thank you for your marvellous Fern Hollow books. They gave my brother and I many hours of joy. I no longer have many of the books and I am looking to purchase them."

M.H.S., Canada.
