More About the Author

Jonny spent his childhood in the wet and windy hills of North Wales, exploring forests, riding his bike for miles and miles, scrumping apples and building tree-houses. And when he wasn't outside he was drawing and busily creating worlds, sprawled across his bedroom floor, with paper everywhere.

When he realized he had to grow up and get a job, he went to college to study illustration and then got himself a proper job on a pirate ship. He spent a year climbing up and down rigging before jumping ship in Dublin because the ship's chef didn't like his vegetarian ways. As a landlubber, he enjoyed stints as an encyclopedia salesman, a children's entertainer in Majorca, a gallery warden, and an art teacher in Kang, a small village in the middle of the Kalahari Desert.

Jonny eventually ended up designing characters for computer games. Whilst working as a freelance games artist, he wrote a picture book about a sea monster called 'The Pirate Cruncher' and did all the pictures too, which was published by templar in 2009. Then he helped design the characters for Aardman's stop-motion movie 'The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!'.

A second picture book 'The Pirates Next Door' followed (which won the 2012 Waterstones Children's Book Prize), and then Jonny went a bit sci-fi with 'The King of Space' picture book. In an attempt to work his way through all the things he liked drawing as a nipper, his latest book is all about dinosaurs and is called 'Gigantosaurus!'.

Nowadays, Jonny has returned to the wet and windy hills of North Wales. He spends most of his time drawing and busily creating worlds, sprawled across his studio floor, with paper everywhere. When he's not drawing, he likes exploring forests, riding his bike for miles and miles, scrumping apples, fixing old cars and building garden sheds.

What a brilliant book! I have been looking for a dinosaur story book ,that gives more understanding for my 5 year old on how big and loud these creatures would have been and the different types of dinosaurs there were, all told in a fun and engaging type of 'the boy who cried wolf ' storyline. Rich and wonderful mysterious pictures had my daughter peering in and excitedly pointing out what else she had spotted. Beautiful giant poster of the gigantosaurus included with book as part of its jacket. Very informative facts given at the end of book told in a very simple way.

My (now) 5 year old has enjoyed all Jonny Duddle's earlier books and, although he has now moved on to having older children's stories (Roald Dahl etc) read to him, he still really enjoyed this. What was a bit more of a surprise was that his two year old sister also loves it!.....it has a nice balance between featuring likeable engaging characters which very young children can relate to and a 'hide-behind-your-hands' scary element! Jonny Duddle's earlier 'Pirate Cruncher' also brought these two aspects together although that one was, I would say, aimed at a slightly older audience.

This book is well suited for 3/4 years old. Not really a great story for older children altho the illustrations are as ever brilliant.
