Mike Brownlow

Mike has worked as a freelance illustrator for many years with many well-known UK and international companies. In 1997 he began to write and illustrate children’s picture books. The first to be published was Way Out West…With A Baby, closely followed by Little Robots. This second book attracted the attention of Lego Media (now Create TV and Film), and was turned into a major animated TV show. As well as creating the book, Mike also wrote several of the episodes for the TV series.

Mike’s other picture books include The Big White Book, I’ve Got Nits!, Little Robot Rabbit, Mickey Moonbeam, Dog Did It, Bad Manners, Benjie! and an elaborate pop-up book from Macmillan, Time Pirates: Kraken Attack. Ten Little Pirates, written by Mike and illustrated by Simon Rickerty proved extremely popular and is the first in a growing series.
