A.F. Harrold is an English poet who writes for both kids and adults. His books for children include the poetry collection Things You Find In A Poet’s Beard (illustrated by Chris Riddell), the very funny Greta Zargo and the Death Robots from Outer Space (illustrated by Joe Todd-Stanton), and the slightly spooky book The Imaginary (illustrated by Emily Gravett). He has a beard and often visits schools, libraries and literary festivals to wave it around while reciting poetry at kids. He lives in Reading with a stand up comedian and two cats.
