Tom Duxbury

Agent: Elinor Cooper

Tom lives on a green hill in south London with two other people and a mouse.  During the day he works at a local primary school.  His favourite evenings include the ones spent looking out of the window with his son and the ones spent writing stories with his partner, Matilda Tristram.

Tom and Matilda’s first picture book arose while explaining to a two-year-old where beards go when they are not on people’s faces.  Santa’s Beard is illustrated by Nick Sharratt and published by Walker Books.  Its follow up, Santa’s Reindeer (about where noses go when they are not on people’s faces), will be out in time for Christmas.
