Illustrator Tim Wesson was born somewhere in England. As a young boy he enjoyed climbing trees and drawing pictures of dogs in cars. Eventually he became an illustrator who creates children's books. Tim doodles and paints whenever he can and likes to draw the first thing that pops into his head. He lives by the sea in Suffolk with his family.
In a nutshell: band of toy superheroes conquer all in a doll eat doll world | The Spy Toys are quite possibly the unlikeliest band of superheroes you could to hope to read about: Dan is a teddy bear accidentally built 1000 times stronger than he should have been; Arabella is a rag doll with the attitude of a bad-tempered rattlesnake; and Flax the rabbit is actually a custom-made police robot. All of them have computerised brains so, rejected by the specialised toy factory that made them, they are recruited by the mysterious Auntie, head of the Department of Secret Affairs and assigned a special mission to protect the prime minister’s son. A fast-moving adventure ensues, a mix of daft but exciting action scenes, wisecracks, slapstick and some proper character development too. Black and white illustrations by Tim Wesson add to the all-round appeal. Young readers who relish this cracking toy story will also enjoy My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons and Hamish and the Worldstoppers by Danny Wallace. ~ Andrea Reece

A boy, a book and a bucket of trouble . . . Fin has promised never to use his diary again. A little old lady gave it to him at a funfair and it turned out to be magic - it let him change what happened during the day as long as he made a wish that evening. But it was more trouble than it was worth and got him into all sorts of scrapes at school and at home. But he needs help. A newish boy, Cliff Sharpnel, is stepping on his toes. Not only does he play the guitar, but he's interested in Claudia Ronson - the most beautiful girl at school.

The diary HAS to come out again. And in his fight to become the Oscar-winning megastar Fin has to scramble to 'do' and 'undo' the havoc that ensues . . .
A boy, a book and a bucket of trouble... Fin Spencer is not the sort of boy who writes in a diary. But when he's given one by a batty old lady at a funfair, he writes in it anyway. He's going to be a famous stuntboy one day, and then he can sell his memoirs and make loads of money! But Fin soon realises it's not a normal kind of diary - it can change the past! So when Fin writes what he SHOULD have done that day (rather than what actually happened) what he SHOULD have done is what everyone remembers. To start with, it's great! By changing what he did, Fin stands up to the school bully and ends up winning the school talent show. But he gets into lots of scrapes while he works out exactly what the diary is capable of changing and what it's not. And even then things backfire - so Fin falls out with his best friend and ends up at a Charlie Dimples concert with a load of six-year-old girls listening to 'My Swishy Wishy'! Can Fin control the diary, or will it control him? This is the first in a hilarious new series by Ciaran Murtagh, a rising star of comic children's fiction, wonderfully illustrated by Tim Wesson.
