About the author

Patrick Makin's first job as a writer was as a war correspondent in Yemen, in 1994, covering the country's civil war. However, when he decided that being bombed and shot at really isn't all it's cracked up to be, he moved to Bristol and cut his teeth working as script-editor ofor Aardman. From plasticine animals to real animals was quite a leap but he still likes to bring a lighter touch to everything he writes.
