Monster is looking after his sister's baby. Monster doesn't know a lot about babies. But Frog has come to help - he's an expert on crying babies!
I was born in Cheshire but have spent my adult life in Leicester where I still live.
I've written well over 100 books for all ages and for both boys and girls.
Probably my best known titles include The Sleepover Club which was made into a long -running TV series, Titchywitch, a series for 5-6 year olds about a little witch (four new titles are currently being illustrated) and my scary series: The Creepies.
I still do a lot of school visits trying to enthuse children about reading and their own writing.
In 2011 I was shortlisted for The Roald Dahl Funny Prize with The Get Rich Quick Club and a second title The Get Rich Quick Club - Kerching is now in print.
I have a new series for 5 year olds (Sir Lancelittle) due soon and other work in the pipeline. A new website is also in the planning stage, until then you can contact me through my main publisher: Hachette Childrens' Books.
