About the Author

Em Lynas is an ex-primary school teacher and author of the Action Words Reading Scheme. She writes funny fiction and poetry because she loves to hear children laugh and also because that's the way her mind works. It doesn't do serious . Em gathers inspiration from memories of the children she taught and the two she brought up, as well as channeling her own childhood experiences. She would like to thank the UK Education Department for giving her so many ideas for Toadspit Towers. Jamie Littler is an illustrator who graduated from the Arts Institute at Bournemouth in 2008. When not trying to tame his un-naturally fast growing hair or having staring matches with next door's cat he likes drawing, colouring in, cutting things out and sticking things in. Jamie's books include Hamish and the Worldstoppers, which was the bestselling children's debut of 2015, and Wilf the Mighty Worrier, shortlisted for the Laugh Out Loud Book Awards.
