Some double-crossing wizards have locked up Measle's mum and dad. So now it's just Measle, his baby sister, and his little dog Tinker and they're up against just about everybody. And when everybody's after you, you need somewhere to hide. Caltrop Castle may look safe enough with its huge bolted doors to keep the lurking horrors out. But what if the lurking horrors are already inside? Poor Measle, even the castle itself is out to get him...This is the third instalment of the fantastic Measle Stubbs Adventures.

About the Author

Ian Ogilvy

Ian is best known as an actor - in particular for his takeover of the role of The Saint from Roger Moore. He has appeared in countless television productions, both here and in the United States, has made a number of films and often starred on the West End stage.

Ian has two grown up children from a previous marriage – Emma and Titus - and two grandchildren (so far) called Barnaby and Matilda. Ian now lives in Southern California with his wife Kitty and two stepsons, Sam and Lee. They also have three dogs and a cat. When he isn’t writing or acting he manages to fill his time by building things out of wood, gardening, playing games on his computer, riding his big black motorbike and scuba diving. A long time ago, he learnt to fly and has even parachuted out of a plane!

Ian wrote and illustrated his first book when he was about six and it was called Cheepy The Chick. It was very short and about a chicken. It was very scary and involved a villainous fox. It was never published but Ian still has it today. He began to write seriously at the suggestion of his Literary Agent.

‘My ideas come from out of my head mainly. But the setting for Measle And The Wrathmonk comes from a remarkable model train set I once saw, which was full of strange little details—like a Victorian nanny pushing a pram up a mountain path, towards a waiting tiger hiding round a bend in the track. I think I write because I think I can—and if you think you can do something, then I think you ought to do it.’
