Alex T. Smith

Author-illustrator Alex T. Smith is the award-winning creator of the bestselling Claude series, which is also a popular cartoon series on TV, and the critically acclaimed and well-loved Mr Penguin series. When not working Alex enjoys doodling in his sketchbook, reading, people watching and eavesdropping. He lives with three naughty dogs – two very tiny Chihuahuas, Coco and Mr Bongo, and an ancient and very bossy Yorkshire Terrier, Lucy Locket.
