Tom Percival grew up in a remote and beautiful part of South Shropshire. On reflection this seemed rather more remote than beautiful, owing to the fact that he lived in a small caravan without electricity, mains water or any sensible form of heating. He thinks that he's probably one of the few people in his peer group to have learned to read by gas lamp. Having established a career as a picture-book author and illustrator, his books for younger readers include Bubble Trouble and Herman's Holiday. The Little Legends series is Tom Percival's first foray into the world of writing chapter books for young readers. The idea for Little Legends was developed by Tom Percival and Made in Me, a digital creative studio exploring new ways for technology and storytelling to inspire the next generation.
