About the Author

Guy Campbell (Author) A writer and graphic designer since 1986. Started the Creative and Graphics company Moran Campbell da Vinci in 1990 producing corporate ID, advertising (newspapers, magazines, point of sale, posters) and packaging (specialising in toys) for, among other clients, Harrods and Hamleys. Writing credits has included over 40 books for children, a monthly comic for children, hundreds of cartoon strips for newspapers and magazines worldwide, puzzles for books, newspapers and magazines, comedy sketches for TV and a short comic play for BBC radio 5. Steve Martin (Author) Steve Martin was born in Northumberland in the far north of England. After graduating in English, he spent many years teaching English to adults - including 15 years teaching literacy in prisons. Steve now lives in the English Midlands, with his wife and two sons and makes his living from a wide range of writing including children's non-fiction, business communication and developing e-learning materials. Dominique Enright (Author) Dominique Enright is a freelance writer and editor. Her previous works for Michael O'Mara Books include The Wicked Wit of Winston Churchill and The Wicked Wit of Jane Austen, and she is also the compiler and editor of selections from the verse of Burns, Keats, Kipling and Wordsworth. She lives in London with her husband, son and two daughters. Juliana Foster (Author) Juliana Foster worked as a non-fiction editor for Headline Book Publishing before becoming a freelance editor and proofreader. She is also the author of three non-fiction books - The Girls' Book (Michael O'Mara), The Christmas Book (Michael O'Mara) and Moan About Men (Headline). She lives in Kent. Guy MacDonald (Author) Guy Macdonald was born in 1972. He grew up in a rambling old house surrounded by huge yew trees that he became very good at climbing. Across the fields was a river where he fished with string from a bamboo cane and made campfires. His greatest achievements of all time are: ripping a telephone directory in half, holding his breath for nearly two minutes underwater and whistling through a blade of grass. He has also co-written a series of children's fiction books called An Awfully Beastly Business about a werewolf boy who climbs trees, makes campfires and, given the chance, could almost certainly fold a single piece of paper at least seven times Martin Oliver (Author) Since starting his career as an author, Martin Oliver has written over 20 books for children covering subjects as wide-ranging as pirates, pharaohs and puzzle adventures. He's also written two titles in the popular Knowledge series, Dead Dinosaurs and Groovy Movies (Scholastic Publishing) Martin lives in Teddington, near London, with his wife, Andrea, and their two daughters, Katie and Isabelle. The Boys Book 2 is his first title for Buster books. Lottie Stride (Author) Lottie Stride has written many books for children, including The Time Travellers' Handbook, Write Every Time and Meerkat Mischief. She lives in London with her three lovely children. She enjoys walking on beaches, eating potatoes, and listening to Beethoven. If she could choose one superpower she would fly through time. Tracey Turner (Author) I'm equally happy writing about Greek myths, scientific theory, cape buffalo, zombies, the Babylonians, or how to plait a pony's mane. I've just started writing fiction, too (due to be published in 2010), and I've also written a few books for adults. I worked as an editor for many years, specialising in children's non-fiction (including the Horrible Histories series) before I started writing my own books. I live in Bath with my partner and our three-year-old son.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
