The sun is setting, it's time for bed...but Clovis isn't at all sleepy! He has decided to be a night-tiger. He just needs someone to play with. Then he sees something flickering in the fading light...fireflies! Clovis plays 'I-spy' with the fireflies all night long and his boisterous, noisy participation in their game disturbs the slumbers of his rainforest friends. Then, when the new day starts, can you guess who's the tiredest tiger in the whole jungle?
Thomas Taylor was born in Norfolk, England in 1973, but grew up in Wales. He attended Norwich Art School in 1991, before going on to specialise in illustration at Anglia University in Cambridge, graduating in 1995. After dabbling in Theatre design he decided to concentrate on children's books because he prefers the colours.
Since his first illustration job, the cover for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Bloomsbury), Thomas has contributed to and illustrated dozens of books, plus written and illustrated four: George and Sophies Museum Adventure, Orchard; The Loudest Roar, OUP; The Biggest Splash - OUP; and The Noisiest Night, OUP.
Thomas has recently moved from Cambridge to Normandy, France where he lives happily with his beautiful wife Célia and his little son Max. He still illustrates stories for children and loves reading them to his boy.
