Nick Ward was born in the late Jurassic period, and since then has written over sixty books for children, from picture books to young fiction. His book "Don't Eat The Teacher" has sold over a million copies and his alter-ego Charlie Small has written twelve volumes of unbelievable but completely true adventurous memoirs.
Brought up living above the family shop in a quiet market town, all Nick Ward ever wanted to do was write and illustrate books, and by hook and by crook, that's exactly what he has ended up doing. He has worked in design studios and converted school buildings, but now works from a little wooden studio (shed) at the bottom of his leafy garden. It's all rather lovely.
