More About the Author

It could be said that Tom Percival had an unconventional childhood in a remote and beautiful part of South Shropshire. But you just as easily rephrase that by saying that he grew up in a ramshackle and freezing-cold caravan with no electricity or heating. Whichever way you look at it, these formative years are almost certainly what first got him interested in writing and drawing.

The first books that Tom ever loved were the Tim and the Hidden People series by Sheila McCullagh, which featured a magical cat called Tobias. It all seemed VERY real at night, in a draughty caravan, reading by gaslight in a howling gale.

After trying a few cities on for size, he decided that deep down he had always been a country boy and now he lives on the edge of Rodborough common in Gloucestershire with his girlfriend and their two young sons.

Tom has produced covers and internal illustrations for the Skulduggery Pleasant series of books as well as for the Chronicles of Egg series by Geoff Rodkey and Shiverton Hall by Emerald Fennell. He has also illustrated titles by Anthony Horowitz, Pete Johnson, Alexadro Adornetto and a whole host of other people.

Tom has three picture books currently available, 'Tobias and the Super Spooky Ghost Book', 'A Home for Mr Tipps' and 'Jack's AMAZING Shadow'.

His next book, 'Herman's Letter' will follow in October 2013 and is published by Bloomsbury.

Format: Hardcover
‘Herman's Letter’ made by Tom Percival brings a beautiful story for the youngest readers that speaks about the power of everlasting friendship.

Herman the Bear and Henry the Raccoon are the best friends ever since they know each for the other - growing up together, these two spent all the time together playing and exploring world around them. But one day Henry will have to move away which would made them both very sad.

Still two friends agreed they will write letters each day to stay in touch, trying everything to be as close as it was before when they were spending days together. Henry will keep his promise, writing about everything what is happening in his new environment, new friends he met, even the weather, but there was no Herman's letter.

Herman didn't know about what to write because life without Henry was boring, he was lonely and sad, even the rain was pouring constantly. He became even jealous that Henry will forget about him. And then letter arrived, Henry writing that he misses his friend and Herman wanted to write back. But to his surprise post office is closed for the winter, therefore Herman will need to think quick about some other way of delivering message to his old friend…

This is first Tom Percival book I read, though for sure will not be the last given how well-made and charming ‘Herman's Letter’ book is. The author delivered an interesting story about friendship in which many children around the world will recognize their situation – separation from the best friend.

Beside beautiful story and good lesson it brought, this children book is complemented with cartoon-like, detailed, multicolored and cheerful illustrations.

Herman's Letter is a really lovely book. I have to admit that I read it as soon as it came through the post, I couldn't wait for my children to come home from school!
The illustration is just beautiful as with all of Tom Percival's books, but it's also very different style from is other books. The story is a little sad, but with a really happy ending. Our family has just moved to London from Luxembourg so it was particularly fitting for my children. My youngest son asked if I could send a copy to his friend he had left behind. I always like to read my children books that have meanings and it's especially nice when they understand them.

This book is a joy of a book. Full of humour and extremely loveable characters. The illustrations are both clever and friendly and the text is such a pleasure to read. My four year old boy love opening the letters and we even 'read' them together. I will look forward to more books from this talented writer/illustrator.
