Will Mabbitt - Author

Will Mabbitt likes to write. He writes on the train, in the corner of cafes, and sometimes, when his laptop runs out of power, he writes in his head. Will has a background in children’s media, producing digital content for Disney, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. His previous children’s books, The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones and Mable Jones and the Forbidden City are also published by Pufffin, for middle grade and primary readers. The third instalment in the Mabel Jones series, Mabel Jones and the Doomsday Book, is due to publish on February 7th 2017 (just after I Can Only Draw Worms). Will lives with his family, cats and a woodlouse infestation in Lewes on the South Coast of England.

He now, also, draws. But he can only draw worms.
