Philip Ardagh's picture

Philip Ardagh

UK flag (1961 - )

Philip Ardagh is over 6 feet 7 inches tall with a big bushy beard. Not only is he very large and very hairy, but he has also written more than sixty children's books for all ages. He has been known to write books about serious subjects -- such as Egyptian hieroglyphs and archeology -- but also writes abnormally funny books (eg. A House Called Awful End) that make lots of people laugh.

Currently living as a full-time writer with a wife and two cats (Beanie and Snorkel), in a seaside town somewhere in England, he has been -- among other things -- an advertising copywriter, a hospital cleaner, a (highly unqualified) librarian, and a reader for the blind.
