Barnaby Grimes: Legion of the Dead

Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad, high-stacking his way across the rooftops of his city in search of adventure and mystery. In each tale, he encounters a supernatural force and must battle the horrors that await him. In LEGION OF THE DEAD, Barnaby finds himself embroiled in a plot that includes a legion of zombies raised from the dead. In Dickensian times, people were terrified of being buried alive, and so were left in their coffin with a wire, attached to a bell, running from above the ground, down through the earth and the lid of the coffin, and tied to the little finger of the buried body. Those who found themselves awake in the darkness of their coffin could wiggle their finger and summon help. And so one night, Barnaby makes a shortcut through a graveyard and is horrified to hear the tinkling of dozens of little bells...

Chris Riddell

Chris Riddell, February 2010

Chris Riddell (born 1962) is a British illustrator and occasional writer of children's literature, and a political cartoonist for The Observer. He has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice and the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize seven times.[1][2]


Early life and background

Chris Riddell was born in 1962 in South Africa where his father worked as a vicar and was opposed to the system of apartheid. The family returned to England when Chris was one year old, where he spent the rest of his childhood with his sister and three brothers who are now living in South Africa, Brighton England, Egypt and Malaysia. Chris displayed artistic talent from an early age, and was encouraged in this by his mother. As a child, his favourite artists were John Tenniel (the original illustrator of Lewis Carroll's book Alice in Wonderland) and William Heath Robinson.

The Edge Chronicles

Some of Riddell's most notable work is The Edge Chronicles, a children's book series co-written with Paul Stewart and illustrated by Riddell himself. Set in the fictional world known as "The Edge", the books have been praised for Chris's beautifully detailed line drawings and the unique nature of their collaborative writing process.

Other works

As well as being an award-winning author and illustrator, Chris is also an acclaimed political cartoonist for The Observer newspaper in London, where his caricatures of politicians from John Major to Gordon Brown, Bill Clinton to George Bush have earned him a reputation as a fine draughtsman and acute commentator on the political scene. Before working at The Observer, Chris spent time working at The Economist as an illustrator and sometime cover artist.

Other books illustrated by Chris Riddell include Fergus Crane, Corby Flood, and Hugo Pepper; all set in the same world. These books were also co-written with Paul Stewart. He also collaborated with him on Muddle Earth and the Barnaby Grimes series. Most recently Chris Riddell has produced the acclaimed "Ottoline" series written whilst he was on holiday visiting his brother in Malaysia. The first book in the series, Ottoline and the Yellow Cat, won the Nestlé Gold Award and was followed by Ottoline Goes to School and Ottoline at Sea.

Chris Riddell is the cover artist for the Literary Review magazine formerly edited by Auberon Waugh, a role which he took over from the late Willie Rushton. Chris's gag cartoon for this magazine called "Illustration to Unwritten Books" was published in book form as The Da Vinci Cod And Other Illustrations To Unwritten Books.
