The Lovereading4Kids comment

For fans of dragons, giants and werewolves, this new series entitled An Awfully Beastly Business will we believe be a sure-fire hit with even the most reluctant reader. Short snappy sentences with pages that are overflowing with action, adventure, mystery and mythical creatures are a hallmark of the writing. At its heart is the RSPCB, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts, an institution for rare and endangered species. In the two launch titles, Werewolf versus Dragon and Sea Monsters and other Delicacies you’ll meet heroes and villains and the plot won’t let up from first page to last with something entirely unexpected. It’s great fuel for boys who are ready to let their imagination run wild.

About the Author

Beastly Boys

The Beastly Boys are Matthew Morgan, David Sinden and Guy Macdonald, best friends from childhood. All have worked in publishing, Matthew Morgan and David Sinden are Matt and Dave, the authors of the hugely successful YUCK series. All three live in Kent.

The authors, all in their early 30’s, who were at the same primary schools together in Kent, have given up full-time employment to write the books. They spent months hiding away at a remote location in Cornwall to finish the books.

Dave originally came up with title An Awfully Beastly Business then we all hit upon the idea fir The Royal society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts, RSPCB, while we were living together in a house in London.

We chose to write together because we all found it much more fun than writing on our own. We’ve been to school together, lived together and worked on many different projects, and this friendship has given us an honest appreciation of our individual and team strengths. We know each other inside out, and we all shared a common vision from the start. We find the books benefit from needing to please all three of us all the time, so the stories are full of ideas.” - Beastly Boy
