Peter Bunzl

Peter Bunzl’s debut Middle Grade novel, Cogheart, was published in Spring 2016 by Usborne. Its sequel, Moonlocket, is due out in Spring 2017. From remarkable mechanimals and incredible automata to soaring airships and dastardly plots, Cogheart is an exhilarating adventure of astonishing imagination – a modern classic to capture the hearts of readers.


Peter has been shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Awards and longlisted for Branford Boase Award with Cogheart.


After studying animation at the NFTS, Peter worked on two BAFTA winning cartoon series (Yoko! Jakamoko! Toto! and The Secret Show) and wrote and directed several fantastical shorts for children. His film, Mind Games was a finalist for Virgin Media Shorts (2008) and was screened in over 200 UK cinemas, while his shorts On The Upside and Mike 360˚ were finalists for the Rushes Best Newcomer Award (2008) and the Raindance Extraordinary Film Competition (2010) respectively. He lives in London.
