Synopsis

Dexter Bexley And The Big Blue Beastie by Joel Stewart

Dexter Bexley has ridden his scooter right into a big blue Beastie, who wants to eat him right up! Luckily, Dexter has lots of much better ideas. Together, they go into business delivering flowers, set up a Private Detectives agency and make the biggest, stickiest, tastiest yoghurt, fudge, banana and ice-cream Beastie feast ever.

About the Author

Joel Stewart

Joel Stewart was brought up in a commune in the wilds of Yorkshire. From an early age he was knocked sideways by stories, and invariably lay on the floor drawing pictures to recover. Later, in the year 2000, he graduated with a first class degree in Illustration from Falmouth College of Art. Ever since graduating (and slightly before) he has been writing and drawing for a living, and has recently moved into animation design and directing for television (while not forgetting books!). He also plays a variety of musical instruments and lives with them and some fish in London. Read about his book here. Read a Q&A with the author here.
