About the Author

Andrew grew up in the London suburb of Ilford. His early ambition was to be an astronaut, however with the British space programme consisting of one washing up bottle painted silver to look like a rocket, tragically it was not to be. Instead he became a writer, at first for comics (in both the UK and USA), and since the mid-nineties he has written over 30 books for children, including Collins, Scholastic, Hodder, Macdonald, DK and Bloomsbury.
