Lance Balchin

Lance Balchin is a children’s illustrator and author who has internationally published two books in the Mechanica series with the Five Mile Press, Simon & Schuster, Little Bee Books and Bonnier Publishing. There are a further seven picture books to follow as well as a set of four novels. The books carry a strong environmental message and are written for children aged from 8 to 14.
