Nick is the creator (as if you didn't already know!) of loveable Percy the Park Keeper, as well as many other characters including Albert Le Blanc and Q Pootle 5.
Nick told me he is currently working with his son, Ben, on a two year project to create an animated series based on the cuddly alien, Q Pootle 5.

When Nick was growing up, he was good friends with a boy who is now another giant in Children's books - the hugely talented and much-loved Mick Inkpen, creator of Wibbly Pig and Kipper. How cool us that!
