About the Author

David Wojtowycz

David Wojtowycz was born in 1969 in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire and after an art foundation course at Cambridge College of Arts and Technology, he took a BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London University. He recently completed an MA in Fine Art at the Chelsea College of Art and Design.

David began his illustration career by creating the Pigs Might Fly and Flux Deluxe greetings cards ranges and was soon talent-spotted and asked to illustrate the popular picture book series that began with RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE, written by Giles Andreae. COMMOTION IN THE OCEAN, COCKADOODLE-DO FARMYARD HULLABALOO, DINOSAURS GALORE and several novelty spin-offs followed this title. This author/illustrator pairing also won the picture book section of the Children’s Book Award in 1998 with THE LION WHO WANTED TO LOVE.

In addition to illustrating the work of writers, David writes many of his own picture book texts and in 2001, A CUDDLE FOR CLAUDE was nominated for the Sheffield Book Award.
