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.

Thiago writes and illustrates all sorts of books, from picture books to fiction and non-fiction. The Zoomers’ Handbook (written with his wife Ana), was published in 2015 by Andersen Press. It was on the long list for the Klaus Flugge award and won the Sheffield Children’s Books Award in 2016.

Myth Atlas - a guide through 12 worlds of myth and legend - was published by Alison Green Books/Scholastic in September 2018 and has been translated to 16 languages so far.

He lives in London with his wife, children and pet tortoise, Nibbles, and is working on a bunch of new books and comics.

He is represented by the most excellent Paul Moreton at Bell Moreton Lomax.
