Books By Jonny Duddle - Author

One of the World Book Day 2015 Authors  Jonny spent his childhood in the wet and windy hills of North Wales, exploring forests, riding his bike for miles and miles, scrumping apples and building tree-houses. When he wasn’t outside he was drawing and busily creating worlds, sprawled across his bedroom floor, with paper everywhere.

When he realised he had to grow up and get a job, he went to college to study illustration and then got himself a proper job on a pirate ship. He spent a year climbing up and down rigging before jumping ship in Dublin because the ship’s chef didn’t like his vegetarian ways. As a landlubber, he enjoyed stints as an encyclopaedia salesman, a children’s entertainer in Majorca, a gallery warden, and an art teacher in Kang, a small village in the middle of the Kalahari Desert.

Jonny eventually ended up designing characters for computer games. Whilst working as a freelance games artist, he wrote a picture book about a sea monster called ‘The Pirate Cruncher’ and did all the pictures too, which was published by Templar in 2009. Then he helped design the characters for Aardman’s stop-motion movie ‘The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!’.

A second picture book ‘The Pirates Next Door’ followed (which won the 2012 Waterstones Children’s Book Prize), and then Jonny went a bit sci-fi with ‘The King of Space’ picture book. In an attempt to work his way through all the things he liked drawing as a nipper, his latest book is all about dinosaurs and is called ‘Gigantosaurus!’.

Nowadays, Jonny has returned to the wet and windy hills of North Wales. He spends most of his time drawing and busily creating worlds, sprawled across his studio floor, with paper everywhere. When he’s not drawing, he likes exploring forests, riding his bike for miles and miles, scrumping apples, fixing old cars and building garden sheds.
