More About the Author

Nick Butterworth was born in north London in 1946 and grew up in a sweet shop. As a boy, he always loved drawing and had an insatiable appetite for stories, two passions which have continued into adulthood. After a conjurer made an appearance at one of his birthday parties he also developed a fascination with magic. (His own prowess as a conjurer was called into question by his daughter, just before her eighth birthday. "Dad, you're not going to do your magic at my party again this year, are you?" she said.)
On leaving school, he worked as a graphic designer and in 1970, he formed his own consultancy with three others, including long time friend and fellow author Mick Inkpen who, "joined the studio during his gap year and just, sort of, stayed."
In 1980, Nick decided to concentrate on illustration. His first book for children, B. B. Blacksheep And Company, was published the next year. His first writings for children appeared in the Sunday Express Magazine in the shape of a regular feature called Upney Junction.
With the advent of breakfast TV, he became a regular presenter on the TV-AM children's programme Rub-a-dub-tub, telling stories and illustrating them live.
Nick's books, have sold over twelve million copies around the world in more than twenty-five foreign languages. They have featured frequently on short lists and won several prestigious awards, including Nick's favourite, The Nestle Gold Award for The Whisperer.
Percy the Park Keeper, who accounts for some seven million of Nick's total sales, first appeared in 1989 in One Snowy Night, and has been the subject of a series of animated films for television. Nick is now a partner in a production company, Snapper, with the aim of producing high quality animation for children's television. Nick's Q Pootle 5, a little alien character, is in development.
Nick lives in Essex and is married to Annette who is also a writer. They have two grown up children Ben and Amanda and two grandchildren, Harry and Thomas. Nick feels very much at home with children of all ages. He enjoys visiting schools and book events whenever he can. He has also gained a reputation as an entertaining and inspirational speaker at more grown up conventions and gatherings of parents and teachers etc, and is a frequent speaker at major book festivals such as Edinburgh, Cheltenham and The Hay.
