About the Author

In his work as a journalist, Tim Hall has written for various national newspapers and magazines. Most recently he spent two years in Bermuda, reporting for the Bermuda Sun.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
