Ross Montgomery has worked as a pig farmer, a postman, and a primary school teacher, so writing books was the next logical step. He spent his childhood reading everything he could get his hands on, from Jacqueline Wilson to comic books, and it taught him pretty much everything that’s worth knowing. If you looked through his pockets, you’d find empty potato chip packets, lists of things to do, and a bottle of that stuff you put on your nails to stop biting them. He lives in London with his girlfriend, a cat named Fun Bobby, and a cactus on every available surface. His previous books include <i>Alex, the Dog and the Unopenable Door</i> and <i>The Tornado Chasers, </i> and <i>Perijee & Me, </i> available from Wendy Lamb Books.
