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 contributed editorial work to clients that include Little White Lies and The Wall Street Journal, and also produced a handful of fun designs for the illustrated-homewares company Beast In Show.

  His latest Picture Book, A Werewolf Named Oliver James, is out now in the UK and will be published in the US this summer (by Arthur A. Levine Books/Scholastic).

  Nicholas is currently illustrating a series of fun-and-informative non-fiction titles for ‘Young Readers’. Written by Rachel Poliquin, the first in the series, BEAVERS, will be published in the US this winter (by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).
   And he is also working on a new Picture Book (or two) of his own... So, watch this space!
