Bryony Thomson - Author

About the Author

Bryony Thomson completed a BA in Fine Art at Wimbledon School of Art and spent four years working as an insurance underwriter before being drawn back to the creative world and graduating with distinction from the M.A. Children's Illustration course at Cambridge School of Art. She was highly commended in the Macmillan Prize and shortlisted for the Bridgeman Studio Award. 'The Wardrobe Monster' is her debut picture book and combines hand printing and colouring with digital techniques. 

She now happily tells people that her job involves drawing pictures, writing stories and the odd bit of colouring  in; she tells them she has the best job in the world. When she isn’t illustrating, Bryony can usually be found in the swimming pool, running through the beautiful Surrey countryside or baking (in order to facilitate the story writing). The Wardrobe Monster is Bryony’s debut picture book.

The Wardrobe Monster

Author: Bryony Thomson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/04/2019

What's that knocking sound coming from the wardrobe? Every night, it makes Dora and her toy friends afraid to go to bed and every morning they are grumpy through lack of sleep. Eventually, they summon up the courage to face their fear together and open the wardrobe door... what falls out provides a humorous and reassuring story for all children who imagine monsters in the darkness. With a sympathetically drawn cast of characters, debut author-illustrator Bryony taps into a childhood fear and converts it into a tale of mutual support. Gently funny, 'The Wardrobe Monster' is a perfect bedtime read.
