New ImageKevin Waldron first studied in Dublin at D.I.T and then did a Masters at Kingston University in London. He worked on his first book, Mr Peek & the Misunderstanding at the Zoo, in college and it was published the following year.

The sequel to Mr Peek, Pandamonium at Peek Zoo followed in 2013.

“I was born in Dublin many summers ago. Growing up near the coast we used to skim stones on the sea, the most important thing was to beat my brother’s score. I don’t feel comfortable unless I’m living near the sea. My mother used to take us to the local library frequently and we could choose four picture books each to bring home, that’s where it all started I guess.”

Kevin’s latest book Harold’s Hungry Eyes was published by Phaidon in May 2016.
