Jo Lodge

  • 4 stars across 67 books
    Jo Lodge is an illustrator and paper engineer and was greatly influenced by her artistic parents - her mother, Maureen Roffey, an illustrator, and her father Bernard Lodge, a graphic designer. Jo graduated with a fashion degree from Kingston University and worked for a knitwear company designing their main collection and consulting on projects for Next, Marks & Spencer and Saks Fifth Avenue.

    Jo is probably best known for her Mr Croc books but her distinctive bright colours and appealing animal characters have been used across a range of children's books including Baby's First Playbook: Farm, and Pounce! Little Kitten. She lives in West Sussex with her husband and two sons.
