About the Author

Jon Blake

Jon Blake's writing career began at the tender age of nine with his modestly titled newspaper, 'World Times'. His first book was published several years later, after a short career "being trodden into the ground by the Youth" as a teacher. He has since written many books for children including You're a Hero, Daley B!, and a trilogy of early readers about Little Stupendo, a stunt-girl extraordinaire!
