Kevin Waldron is an Irish illustrator. His first picture book Mr Peek and the Misunderstanding at the Zoo was published by Templar, shortlisted for the "Read It Again!" Cambridgeshire Children’s Picture Book Award, and got great reviews: "Interesting and unusual" – The Daily Telegraph; "An extraordinarily cheering read for blunderers of all ages and is illustrated with energetic gaiety and humour" – The Observer.

There is an urgent message of Carpe Diem that runs through this beautiful picture book which is about being positive, affirmative, upbeat and actively involved with all opportunities. […] I look forward to trying out this energetic picture book with a group of young children and taking time to enjoy the simple repetitive text as well as looking more closely at the detail in the plentiful illustrations.
