Nicholas John Frith is an illustrator (and Picture Book author) who lives and works on the coast of Dorset, England.
  The majority of his work now appears in the form of Children’s Picture Books, Greeting Cards and Book Covers.

  His first real illustration job was for the food tome FOOD DIY (written by Tim Hayward and designed by John Hamilton, Art Director at Penguin), published in the UK in 2013.

  In 2016 his very own debut book, Hector and Hummingbird, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and, that same year, helped him win the inaugeral Klaus Flugge Prize.

   In the past, he has also contributed editorial work to clients that include Little White Lies,The Wall Street Journal, and Creative Review.

  His latest Picture Book, A Werewolf Named Oliver James, is out now in the UK and the USA.

The first in the series, BEAVERS, is out now in North America. The second in the series, MOLES, will be published this summer, with OSTRICHES following in the winter! (All published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).
