Fred Blunt

  • 5 stars across 39 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.
