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 inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize.

   In the past, he has contributed editorial work to the likes of Little White Lies,The Wall Street Journal, and Creative Review.

He is also the illustrator/author of two other Picture Books, ‘Hello, Mr Dodo!’ and ‘A Werewolf Named Oliver James’. 

  Nicholas is currently illustrating a series of fun-and-informative nature titles for Young Readers, THE SUPERPOWER FIELD GUIDE SERIES, written by Rachel Poliquin.
  The first three in the series, ‘BEAVERS’, ‘MOLES’ and ‘OSTRICHES’ are out now in North America. The forth title, ‘EELS’, will be published this summer! (All published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).

   He is also working on a new Picture Book (or two) of his own... So, watch this space!
