About the Author

Neil Morris

Neil Morris worked in publishing for more than ten years before becoming a writer. After studying German at Swansea University, he got his first job as a lexicographer, helping to compile a German-English dictionary. Neil lived in Munich for a few years, translating, proofreading and learning how to make and edit films as well as books. Back in London he worked as an editor for an educational publisher, and this was when he first got hooked on creating exciting books for children.

Neil's publishing career took him on a zigzag course through preschool activity packs, board games and educational toys, eventually leading him back to books. Working freelance, he now works almost exclusively on information books. Neil writes for all age groups and tackles many different subjects, including history, geography and biography. His work has also included compiling young children's word books and junior dictionaries, and he has contributed to large reference works, such as Encarta Children's Encyclopaedia.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
