About Rob Lloyd Jones

Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up. He wanted to be Indiana Jones. So he studied Egyptology and archaeology, and went on expeditions to strange places. But all he found were interesting stories. So he decided to write them down. Wild Boy is his first novel, although he's written around thirty other books for children, including historical non-fiction and adaptations of classics such as Jekyll and Hyde. He lives in London (SW2) with his wife and one-year-old son, who has big eyes like Wild Boy, but is not as hairy...
