ABOUT NICK JONES

  • I’m Nick Jones, an award-winning children’s author based in Congleton, Cheshire.

    My debut picture book, Sarah’s Shadow, was published by Full Media Ltd in 2017. It won a number of awards in 2018, most notably Best Picture Book on the US book review website Readers’ Favorite – an accolade previously scooped by one of my favourite actors Jim Carrey, which I was particularly happy about!

    In December 2020, my second picture book One Night in Beartown was published and has received positive feedback from book critics such as Linda Hill, who said: “One Night In Beartown is a glorious book that deserves to be snapped up by a production company and turned into a Christmas tradition along with those well known animations of books by Raymond Briggs or Julia Donaldson.”

    In December 2021 I published a sequel: One Christmas in Beartown. In 2022 my fourth picture book, Franklyn – No Ordinary Fox, will be released, and I plan to write a third Beartown book later in the year. I am also publishing another book I wrote three years ago called Snailish, illustrated by the wonderful Leo Brown.
