  • 5 stars across 4 books
    A.F. Harrold is an English poet who writes and performs for adults and children. He spends his time showing off onstage, writing poems and books, and stroking his beard (it helps churn the ideas). He is the author of the Fizzlebert Stump series and the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medal longlisted The Imaginary, illustrated by Emily Gravett. He lives in Reading with a stand-up comedian and two cats.

    Joe Todd-Stanton grew up in Brighton and studied at UWE Bristol, receiving a first class degree in Illustration.
