About the Author

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!
