Tony De Saulles trained in graphics at The London College of Printing and worked as a book designer before becoming an illustrator and writer.
Illustrating the best-selling and award-winning Horrible Science series (Scholastic Children’s Books) has provided a busy workload for many years with worldwide sales of 15 million books. Horrible Science spin-offs include a highly successful range of experiment kits from Galt Toys, a theatre show from the Birmingham Stage Company and a children's television series on ITV.
In recent years Tony has written and illustrated both fiction and non-fiction Early Readers. His current project is Bee Boy, a highly illustrated fiction trilogy for 8–12 year olds. The first title, Clash of the Killer Queens, is published in 2018 by Oxford University Press.
Tony has held cartoon-illustration workshops at Edinburgh, Cheltenham, Bath and Hay Book Festivals together with countless visits to schools and libraries. He has also taken his workshops overseas to China, India and Dubai.
Out of the studio, Tony enjoys walking, camping, cooking, badminton, table tennis and all things nature-related. He has two grown-up children and lives with his wife and dog in West Sussex. He works from a studio at the bottom of the garden.
