Can Stanley keep his mischievous cousin Dennis out of trouble? Not if Dennis has anything to do with it. A delightful story with bright and bold pictures to share with toddlers.

About the Author

Matt Buckingham

Matt Buckingham was born in Cheshire and grew up in the countryside. He studied Illustration at Loughborough University and went on to work as a freelance illustrator and junior designer for a specialist vehicle manufacturer that built fire engines. He then completed his Masters at Falmouth College of Art where he began to write and illustrate his own picture books. Since then he has continued to invent stories and draw the kinds of pictures he would have loved to have seen when he was growing up.

Matt now lives in the Cheshire countryside with his wife, two children and two naughty dogs and and works as a full-time illustrator. He has created some charming characters in pre-school novelty books such as Peek-a-Boo Penguins to the best selling picture book character Bright Stanley (a picture book which was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Award in 2007).
