Rob Wilkinson

Rob Wilkinson is an illustrator, storyteller and teacher from Whitley Bay on the North-East Coast of England. He dabbles in cartoons, whimsy and occasionally Dinosaurs. While teaching High School Science, and working for YMCA Camp Hayo-Went-Ha in Michigan, he has used his creative talents to enthuse and delight Children and Adults Alike.

In 2012, Rob gained a distinction from London Art College in ‘Illustrating Children's books’, and has gone on to work on countless T-shirt designs, several yearbooks, charitable work and educational projects. This will be his first published work, and he is working on several new projects, some of which involve Dinosaurs.

Rob lives in an old terraced house, a few short strides from the North Sea, with his family, and two eccentric cats. His long association with the author is based on many shared moments of joy looking out upon Torch Lake in beautiful Northern Michigan.
