Tom Percival grew up in a remote and beautiful part of South Shropshire (or in a ramshackle and freezing-cold caravan, depending on how nostalgic he is feeling). He now lives in a far more conventional building (a house), with his girlfriend and their young sons. Tom has produced covers and internal illustrations for the Skulduggery Pleasant series of books as well as for titles by Anthony Horowitz, Pete Johnson and Alexadro Adornetto. In the non-publishing world he has produced illustrations for Texaco, ASDA, Virgin, Ryan-air and Vodafone.
Tom’s debut picture book, Tobias and the Super Spooky Ghost Book was published in 2010 and his second, A Home For Mr Tipps, in 2011. Jack’s Amazing Shadow followed in April 2013, and Herman’s Letter in September 2013. Tom’s latest book is Bubble Trouble, published by Bloomsbury in September 2014 and Herman and Henry’s adventures will continue in 2015, in Herman’s Holiday.
Tom is currently working on further picture books, animation concepts and a young fiction title.
