M P Robertson - Author

Mark (M.P) Robertson was born in Parsons Green, London in 1965.

At an early age he moved to a dormitory town where he did his best to sleep through most of his education.

He narrowly managed to acquire the minimum number of 'O' levels to study graphic design at Hounslow Borough College.

After three years he left disillusioned, took a year to ponder his own navel, then returned to take a degree in illustration at Kingston polytechnic.

After leaving in 1988 he was amazed to find people willing to pay him money to do what he enjoyed. He has been capitalizing on this ever since.

His first picture book Seven Ways to Catch the Moon was published in 1999.

He currently lives in Bradford on Avon, near Bath, with his partner Sophy Williams (Also an illustrator) and two boys. He works in his garden shed where he worries about losing his hair.
