Karl Newson

Karl Newson is an award-winning children´s book biscuit.

He grew up in Norwich, England, and was inspired to write his first picture book story when his children were small... he´s been writing stories ever since. When Karl isn´t writing he enjoys walking in woods, listening to music and reading other biscuits. He lives in London and dreams of castles made of books and rocketing to the moon to watch the world go by.

Karl´s stories have been shortlisted for the Booktrust Storytime Prize, the Sainsbury´s Children´s Book Award and Oscar´s Book Prize, and he is a winner of the Leicester ´Our Best Picture Book´ Award and the West Sussex Picture Book Award for I Am a Tiger, and a BookstaGrammie for The Hat Full of Secrets. His stories have been translated in 25 languages around the world.
