Author Biography

Tom Jackson has been a writer for 20 years. He has written more than 100 books and contributed to many more, covering everything from axolotls to zoroastrianism. His specialties are natural history, technology and all things scientific. Tom studied zoology at Bristol University and has had spells working in zoos and as a conservationist. He’s mucked out polar bears and fed the penguins, planted trees in Somerset, surveyed Vietnamese jungle and rescued wildlife from drought in Africa. Writing jobs have also taken him to the Galápagos Islands, the Amazon rain forest, the coral reefs of Indonesia and the Sahara Desert. Today, Tom lives in Bristol, England, with his wife and three children, and can be found mostly in the attic.

Rudolf Farkas is from Hungary and his artwork can be seen in the galleries of Budapest, but the majority of his work is displayed around the world. Over the past few years his illustrations have been published in more than 40 books and even more magazines. His work focuses mainly on traditional and realistic imagery. Rudolf’s attention to detail and use of painting techniques is very effective and this results in spectacular images. As he lives in the city (London), he expresses his love of animals through his artworks.
