Scott Tulloch

Tulloch Scott 10-735Scott Tulloch is a self-taught New Zealand author and illustrator. He has illustrated more than 20 books, many of which are written by other New Zealand authors. However he particularly likes to write and illustrate his own books, using pictures as much as words to tell the story. His books often reflect his observations on the daftness of human behaviour. Scott was born in Wellington in 1966, educated in the Hutt Valley, moved to the Wairarapa to raise a daughter and currently lives in Queenstown.
Scott is a regular speaker at schools and loves sharing his love of reading, writing and illustration with kids and teachers alike - and he knows how to make them laugh.
