About the Author

Since then he has written and illustrated picture books as well as working on animated TV shows for Disney and Cartoon Network. The Accidental Prime Minister is his debut children's novel. Tom lives in Devon and his hobbies include drinking tea, looking out of the window, and biscuits. His hates include spiders and running out of tea and biscuits.
