Alex Latimer is a South African children's book author and illustrator. His first children’s book was published by Random House in the UK and Peachtree Publishers in the USA. Alex is also part of the team responsible for the cartoon The Western Nostril. He lives in Cape Town.
Alex lives near the border of a national park in Cape Town in South Africa, so when not writing or drawing, he spends his free time shooing baboons out of his lounge.
