Jennifer Killick has always wanted to be a writer, but really started when she applied for a Creative Writing MA at Brunel University, which is where she first got the idea for 'The Really Big Stink'. She lives in Uxbridge, in a house full of children, animals and Lego. When she has the time she loves to read, write, and run as fast as she can. Jennifer's favourite things are books, trees and fluffy slippers, and her favourite place in the world is her home, where she can sit in her pyjamas with tea and cake, coming up with story ideas.
In a Nutshell: Humour | Adventure | Superpowers Laugh your socks off with this brilliantly funny fantasy adventure from a debut author whose passions are writing and running. Alex Sparrow has always wanted to have a super-power and to be a super-agent; then in year 6 something really extraordinary happens to him. Together with a rather clever goldfish called Bob and Alex's new best friend Jess who just happens to have a super-power too they must make use of their unique strengths to find who is behind a villainous plot and save the day. Full of farts, jokes and superhero references this is a perfect read for fun-loving kids with ambitions to go far. Readers will also enjoy Matt Brown’s Compton Valance series, or Jo Franklin’s Help!
