James Sellick

With an economics degree in his back pocket, James decided life would be much less boring if he could entertain people for a living, as opposed to helping them with their tax returns. So, he started a career in TV. Now, he loves to write picture books. 

His debut book, There’s a Rang-tan in my Bedroom, brought the horrible truth about palm oil to the surface. He hopes his next book, There’s a Monster in my Kitchen, will do the same for industrial meat. 

James lives in Hackney, has a laugh that was once described as a hyena on helium and thinks animals are often better people than people.

There's a Rang-Tan in My Bedroom

When a little girl discovers a mischievous orangutan on the loose in her bedroom, she can't understand why it keeps shouting OOO! at her shampoo and her chocolate. But when Rang-tan explains that there are humans running wild in her rainforest, burning down trees so they can grow palm oil to put in products, the little girl knows what she has to do: help save the orangutans!

Published in collaboration with Greenpeace, featuring a foreword from Dame Emma Thompson and brought to life by award-winning illustrator Frann Preston-Gannon, this is a very special picture book with a vital message to share.

Extra pages at the back include information about orangutans and palm oil plus exciting ideas about how young readers can make a difference.
