Bestselling author of over 65 books for children, Timothy Knapman has delighted hundreds of young readers in schools, colleges, museums and festivals across the UK and USA.

Virtual Visit Details

My events are all about encouraging children to have fun with books and stories as both readers and writers. I mostly write picture books: among the most popular are Dinosaurs in the Supermarket (and its sequels), Superhero Dad, Mum and Gran, and Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bogey? I spend most of my events reading some of these, getting the kids laughing and engaged. Then I take questions and talk about where ideas come from, how a writer develops an idea into a story, and share some of the tips that I’ve picked up over a lifetime of writing.
