Fred Blunt

  • 5 stars across 43 books
Fred never wanted to be an astronaut or drive a train when he grew  up. Right from the beginning he knew he wanted to draw silly pictures  for a living... and some decades later he's living the dream!
Since  graduating from UWE Bristol in 1996, Fred now  works mostly in children's books, illustrating several titles for Puffin and  Usborne publishing, amongst others. Interrupted  only by tea-breaks and toddlers, Fred works from his home studio in  Swindon, Wiltshire, UK where he lives with his wife and two young  children.
