About the Author

Dominic Barker was born in 1966 in Southport only months after England won the World Cup. He studied English at Birmingham University and subsequently was a stand-up comic with the likes of Frank Skinner and Alan Davies, then a secondary school teacher, before writing his first series for young readers and the geniously funny Blart books. Dominic lives in Spain. Hannah Shaw is the hugely talented illustrator of the award-winning THE GREAT HAMSTER MASSACRE. She has also written and illustrated several successful picture books, including EVIL WEASEL and ERROL. Her brilliant work on CROCODILES ARE THE BEST ANIMALS OF ALL by Sean Taylor attracted the attention of the judges when it was shortlisted for the 2009 Roald Dahl Funny Prize.
