John Condon


John lives with his family by the sea and enjoys weekend walks along the beach, or at least that’s what he tells people. In reality he loves nothing more than to sit in a comfy armchair, with a fresh cup of tea, dreaming up new story ideas. Very occasionally he will go for a walk on the beach but only after putting up a good fight.

His previous book, The Pirates Are Coming (Nosy Crow) was the winner of the Children’s Jury Award in Belgium and was shortlisted for several others, including The Queen’s Knickers Award and the Stockport Children’s Book Award.

His first picture book, The Wondrous Dinosaurium, was Maverick Arts’ fastest selling book of the year and was shortlisted for several awards, including The Children's Book of the Year.

The Best Bear Tracker


The BEST BEAR TRACKER in the world is on the lookout! But can she find a bear?

How do you spot a bear? In The Best Bear Tracker, the rules are quite clear, but maybe, just maybe, our heroine might not be as good at tracking as she thinks.

This hilarious picture book is full of quirky charm. Little readers will love laughing at the main character, who is oblivious to the bears following her through the forest. But are they really what she is looking for?
