More About the Author

Clive Goddard didn't know he was a writer until Fintan Fedora happened. He thought he was a cartoonist. It was probably all those years spent illustrating 'Horrible' books for Scholastic that gave him this idea.

Fintan Fedora (The World's Worst Explorer) is his first work of children's fiction, partly inspired by his own love of travel and disastrous experiences. (ie. Being chased by an angry ostrich in Swaziland, having his rucksack soaked by a leaky toilet in The Netherlands, getting heatstroke in Namibia, food poisoning in Thailand and being robbed in China.)

The book has gone on to win the Stockport Schools Book Award 2012 (Key Stage 2) and the Hounslow Book Award 2012 as well as being runner-up in the inaugural Oldham Brilliant Books Award 2012.

The sequel 'Fintan Fedora Explores Again' takes us to Iceland, Turkey, Russia & China and features an ancient lost village, ruthless gangsters and the odd lump of panda poo.

Clive lives in Oxford, UK where he draws, writes and practices sleeping for long periods of time. He is yet to win either The Booker or The Pulitzer prize but has a Blue Peter badge for colouring-in.

Format: Hardcover
Scholastic create some wonderful series for children, and this new series - Bonkers Books is just as much fun as its predecessors. 366 bonkers things to do (yes, even if it's a Leap Year). THere are plenty of weird facts - have you heard of World Zombie Day and International Polar Bear Day? Despite being fun, there are also genuine learning opportunities - try the suggestions for writing a horror story, or the Kings and Queens Quiz. A fun classroom resource - teachers can amaze the class with a new fact every day. The range of facts is huge, there is something here for everyone, all complemented by plenty of fun illustrations. This would be a super book to give as a present at the start of a school holiday to keep children entertained for hours.
