 Exciting and wholly addictive stories

Charlie Higson is successful novelist for both adults and children, with 4 thrillers for adults and 2 magnificent series for kids. His Young Bond (9+) books have sold millions worldwide and his deliciously creepy Enemy (12+) series is read-through-your-fingers Zombie nightmare!  Charlie took his inspiration for The Enemy from early zombie films and based the characters on his own children and their friends! The sixth title in this nail-biting series, The Hunted, is published this month.

Charlie Higson is also the master of the weird and wonderful, well-known for penning and starring in sublimely irreverent and darkly hilarious sitcoms, sketch-shows and screenplays.
