Thiago de Moraes

As a child, Thiago got told off constantly for doodling instead of paying attention. He still gets told off constantly, but not so much for the doodling, these days.

After working for twenty years as an award-winning advertising art director and commercial illustrator, Thiago’s first picture book, The Zoomers’ Handbook  (written with his wife Ana), was published in 2015 by Andersen Press. In November 2016, the book was named winner of the picture book category at the Sheffield Children’s Book Awards.

Thiago is currently working on his next book with Alison Green Books/Scholastic. He lives in London.
