My name is Adam Perrott. Rapscallion. Cad. Miscreant. Lover. Pedlar of Nonsense. Shoe-owner. In fact, I have two. I write comedy for children. My first book was Eerie Deirdre Darkly which won The Beryl Bainbridge Award for a First-Time Author 2009/2010 at The Peoples' Book Prize - an award almost as exhausting to pronounce as the book's title. My second book is called The Odds. My second Odds book - The Odds Strike Back - is out now. I write jokes and songs. I am currently wrangling the BBC into giving me my own comedy show for children.
