Karl Newson is an up-and-coming children's book writer and illustrator from London. He grew up in Norfolk, and on rainy days he would stay indoors and draw until his pens ran out of color. He was inspired to write when his children were small, and he has been making up stories ever since. When Karl isn't writing, he enjoys watching science fiction films, reading adventure stories, and listening to music from the 1960s. He loves to gaze at the stars and wonder... and he always gets his best ideas just before bed. Karl is also the author of Here Comes the Sun, Little Gray's Birthday Surprise, Fum, and A Bear is a Bear.
