Roy Bentley is an author and illustrator of children's books for younger readers.
Starting as an artist and cartoonist for a number of newspapers and magazines, Roy progressed to supplying illustrations to both music and children's books for a variety of publishers.
During that period he experimented with writing his own stories. These started being published in 1980.
