Jonny Zucker

Jonny Zucker was born in 1966. He grew up in London and started writing stories at an early age. He wrote his first full-length book - The Revenge of Caprir - when he was 10. Unfortunately, in 2016, Jonny sadly passed away. Jonny will be missed as a much-loved personality and as an exceptional author and human being.

Jonny wrote over 70 books and novels for children and teenagers. Jonny’s best-known series are Monster Swap with Horrid Henry illustrator, Tony Ross (Hodder), Danny Sharp (Scholastic) Max Flash (Stripes Publishing) Striker Boy (Frances Lincoln) and Venus Spring - Stunt Girl (Piccadilly Press). He also wrote the popular James King of England (Meadowside Children’s Books) which was illustrated by Dennis the Menace artist - Barrie Appleby.

Jonny’s books have been longlisted and shortlisted for many book awards. The first Monster Swap book – Voxy and Robbie - was selected for the Richard and Judy Children’s Reading Club and the second Max Flash – Supersonic -  won the Nottingham Mega Read Award. His work has been translated into 15 languages.

Jonny wrote for Badger Publishing for ten years, acting as Series Editor and writer for all of the Full Flight series as well as its spin-offs, like First Flight, Dark Flight, Runway and Ignite. He also wrote the 8-book, accessible hero series, Rex Jones. 

As an author who wanted to inspire children to write, working with Badger Publishing was the perfect partnership. Badger’s ‘reluctant reader’ books look fantastic and get the balance between reading age and interest age just right. Through speaking to hundreds of teachers, Jonny saw first-hand that his books make a very real difference to children’s confidence and ability as readers.
