Who is the man behind the whacky?
Born in London in 1942, Colin has lived in a variety of locations, including Mallorca, Great Bernera (in The Outer Hebrides), and for more than 25 years in a 300-year old farmhouse near Hadrian’s Wall. In 1995 he moved to Australia where he now lives with his wife, two dogs and three ducks in a beautiful valley called The Promised Land.
Best known as a writer and illustrator of children’s books, Colin’s first book was published in 1991, and he has had over 70 books published across the world since then. Colin’s illustrations are full of fun, intrigue and parody, and are packed with objects and events, designed to keep you interested as you search through the puzzle pieces!
