About the Author

Dominique Enright (Author) Dominique Enright is a freelance writer and editor.

She lives in London with her husband, son and two daughters. 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. 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.
