James Campbell - Author

Soon after discovering he could not be a duck James Campbell decided to make children laugh for a living. He now travels around primary schools and literary festivals, telling funny stories and encouraging children to write their own stuff. James has been on the BBC1 show, Child of Our Time, and CBBC's Blue Peter, where he taught children how to craft their own jokes. Kids love him so much that he has his own Comedy4Kids show called The Funny Thing About... where he talks about this hilarious new book. Rob Jones is an extremely funny young illustrator. In May 2015, his first book 'Bernard' won The People's Book Prize. When he's not drawing, he makes toys and puppets (mostly characters from his books). He doesn't have a pet but he could have an imaginary one.
