John Bendall-Brunello has been working as a children's book illustrator for over 25 years, illustrating more than 30 books. He has worked alongside many prestigious authors, such as Dick King Smith and Martin Waddell. John began drawing at a young age when he used to doodle cartoons of his teachers in his books at school. He now lives part of the year in Cambridge and part in Cannes, South of France with his wife, Tiziana. When he is not illustrating children’s books, he enjoys playing the piano, snooker and chess, and travelling to far-flung places.
