Nick Crumpton is a children’s writer (and lapsed zoologist) from the UK. He wrote his first book for children whilst completing his PhD in zoology at the University of Cambridge, and his second when working at the BBC Natural History Unit and the Natural History Museum, London. He then worked as a natural history consultant for Ladybird, Thames and Hudson, Lonely Planet and DK among other clients before his third book, Everything You Know About Dinosaurs is Wrong, was published by Nosy Crow in 2021.
Although a research scientist by training, he is most passionate about the communication of science and sharing the secrets of the natural world through public engagement.
He lives in a tumbling down house in North London with his partner and young daughter.
