Paul Stewart was born in in London and lived for a year in Muswell Hill before moving to Morden in Southwest London, "the end of the Northern line". For several years he taught English as a foreign language in Sri Lanka. Returning to England, he became a primary school teacher before giving up to write full time. His first book was published in and he has since worked for a number of publishers and had over twenty titles published. There are also three books in the Far Flung Adventures — Hugo Pepper, the third in the series, was published in April Chris Riddell is familiar to both children and adults for his distinctive line drawings with their clever caricature, fascinating detail and often enchanting fantasy elements. One of his claims to fame is that he was the first cartoonist to depict William Hague in shorts; an illustration that William Hague subsequently bought!
He is also the acclaimed political cartoonist for the Guardian and the Observer. Their latest book, for the same age group, is Corby Flood. A rollicking rollercoaster of a ride full of jokes, puns and a totally skewiff take on life, it is the book that inspired me to be a writer. This masterful tale of dark forces and darker magic could have been forged in the endless forests of Grimm's fairy tales. A fast-paced story that has more wacky characters and weird incidents per page than just about any other book for this age group.
