Tom Percival grew up in a remote and beautiful part of South Shropshire. On reflection this seemed rather more remote than beautiful, owing to the fact that he lived in a small caravan without electricity, mains water or any sensible form of heating. He thinks that he's probably one of the few people in his peer group to have learned to read by gas lamp. "
"An established picture-book author and illustrator, his books for younger readers include A Home for Mr Tipps and Jack's Amazing Shadow. Tom has made his first foray into the world of writing chapter books with the Little Legends series for Macmillan Children's Books, beginning with The Spell Thief.
