Rob Lloyd Jones

  • 5 stars across 76 books
    Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up – he wanted to be Indiana Jones! So he studied Egyptology and archaeology, and went on expeditions to strange places. But all he found were interesting stories, so he decided to write them down.  Rob has won a string of awards, including the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize, The Phoenix Book Award and the Sussex Children’s Book Award.
