Jonny Duddle

Hailing from North Wales, landlubber Jonny Duddle spent his childhood riding his bike and exploring forests. When he wasn't outside, you'd find him up in his bedroom drawing. While working as a computer game designer, Jonny came up with an idea for a picture book about a pirate-crunching sea monster called The Pirate Cruncher. Published in 2009, this bestselling and multi-award winning book paved the way for more exciting pirate adventures including The Pirates Next Door (2011) which won the 2012 Waterstones Children's Book Prize. As well as pirates, Jonny has written about both space and dinosaurs, with The King of Space (2013) and Gigantosaurus (2014) both receiving critical acclaim. More recently, Jonny has created new covers for J K Rowling's Harry Potter series.
