Nikki Dyson

  • 5 stars across 31 books
    Nikki grew up in the countryside in a small village called Shrivenham in Oxfordshire. Nikki studied for her illustration degree in Swindon and since graduating in 2006 has illustrated books for children including 1,000 Animals, 1,000 Things to Eat, How to be a Superhero and How to be a Pirate.

    Nikki spent a lot of her childhood drawing, reading and making mud pies in the garden. To this day she still does the same but gets paid for it too, which is lovely, and you'll be pleased to hear the mud pie business is still going strong. Nikki loves creating characters for stories and is hugely inspired by animation and concept artists especially. One of her favourite cartoons is Looney Tunes' Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner - "Beep, Beep!"
