Richard Jones grew up in Leamington Spa before moving down to Devon to study illustration at the University of Plymouth in Exeter. After finishing his degree, he stayed on to complete a PhD. He worked in a busy children's library for many years, before swapping shelving picture books for making them! Richard has illustrated more than twenty books for children, including The Snow Lion by Jim Helmore and his own Perdu and Little Bear. When he's not at his desk, he enjoys exploring the glorious countryside and beaches around his home.
