Ian Whybrow has lived in Kent, various places in London and as far afield as Hong Kong and New York. The most important thing to him in his writing is that it reads aloud brilliantly and that there is something in it for everyone.
These funny, inventive, high quality stories touch on subjects dear to boys' hearts....Wonderful stuff, with plenty to please both sexes.
