Alex lived in Oslo, Norway until the age of 5, when his family moved to Buckinghamshire. He studied Graphic Design at Coventry University, and he is a self-proclaimed drawing addict with a love for scuba diving and snowboarding. The Bug Collector is his first picture book as both author and illustrator. Alex now lives in Canada with his wife Anna, who is a primary school teacher.
"The story is filled with action and movement and the pages are
packed with detail. I love the way George chases after his bugs
with such a loping stride and the relationship between him and his
grandfather is tender and convincing." * LoveReading4Kids *
"Properly informative and lovely to read." * Angels & Urchins *
"The Bug Collector is not only a very enjoyable story, it also incorporates information about mini beasts and their importance in the natural world. Sharing this book might inspire young naturalists to observe bugs in their natural environment and find out more about creating minibeast friendly habitats." * Books for Keeps *
