About the Author

Lionel Paxton is an author who has recently turned his hand to children's books. He saw the need for informative picture books for children from the age of 5 to 10. Married to Mary Ellen, they are the busy parents to four boys, Simon, Will, and the twins Jack and Thomas. Books are typically the first exposure to learning and art that children get which urges one to make the very best books possible. He understands just how important books were to his childhood. With them, he feels as if transported to some parallel universe, a world of grace, hope and wonder. Lionel said, "The boys want more than just picture books they also want to learn things they can tell their friends about. Jack in particular loves learning new things. He was sick of story books and wanted something a bit more challenging." As the author of a few heavy historical novels he started writing children's books for the boys not long after Will was born. Being boys they wanted adventure and scary dragons. But after Jack and Thomas arrived Jack wanted to read 'real' books about 'real' things, not pretend stuff. Not being able to find suitable books written to the capacity of a 4 or 5 year old, he started making little flip books on his computer and using pictures from magazines and photographs in his collection. He sent one of these books to his publisher who thought this a great idea and has since commissioned a series of books for this age group. With the help of the boys he is currently working on several picture books about our land and sea animals. Lionel lives with his family, Billy the bitser, cats Ghost and Patch and assorted lizards and insects in Ho-Ho-Kus, a suburb of New York (Northern New Jersey-Long Island).
