Josh Lacey

I am the author of forty children’s books which have been translated into more than twenty languages. 

My books range from picture books – The Pet Potato – to middle-grade novels like A Dog Called Grk

My most recent series is the Time Travel Twins – thrilling adventure stories set in different historical periods: the Vikings, the Anglo-Saxons, the Romans, Boudicca, the Stone Age, the Maya. 

“Josh Lacey’s comic timing is impeccable. This witty little book deserves to be read and reread.” The Dragonsitter reviewed by Books for Keeps 

“This is one of the best evocations of Viking times I’ve read, all the characters live and breathe on the page, and readers really will feel they’ve been back in time too.” The Viking Attack, LoveReading4Kids 

A Dog Called Grk is a traditional adventure story in the best sense of the phrase… told in a sprightly style, full of dry wit and understatement. [Josh Lacey] stage-manages his plot with lightness of touch, and the novel mixes high tension – on both a domestic and international scale – with farce, in a story with a heart-warming core.” A Dog Called Grk, The Bookseller
