Timothy Knapman writes plays, musicals, songs and children’s books. He does lots of school visits and bookshop readings. Please contact Authors Aloud UK if you'd like to arrange one.
This is where you can find out everything you want to know about Tim and his work.
Illustrated by the brilliant Gemma Merino (author and illustrator of The Crocodile Who Didn’t Like Water, among many others), Tim’s new book is about a heedless hare called Harry, who zooms along on his scooter so fast that the world around him is just a blur. Until, that is, he takes a tumble and needs the help of slow and thoughtful Tom the Tortoise. Tom teaches Harry that there’s a better, and more mindful, way to live
Tim’s next musical is GROWL. Telling “the true story of the big bad wolf”, it’s his latest collaboration with lyricist and composer Laurence Mark Wythe, with whom he previously wrote MIDNIGHT and DANNY HERO. Tickets are now available for the 2019 National Youth Music Theatre production which will be touring to: the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, Curve Studio, Leicester and the Rose Theatre, Kingston.
