Guy Bass

  • 4 stars across 44 books
    Guy Bass grew up dreaming of being a superhero - he even had a Spider-Man costume. The costume doesn't fit any more, so Guy now contents himself with writing. He writes the Gormy Ruckles series for Scholastic UK, as well as the popular Dinkin Dings and The Legend of Frog series for Stripes. In 2010, Dinkin Dings and the Frightening Things won a CBBC Blue Peter Book Award in the "Most Fun Story with Pictures" category. Guy lives in London with his wife. Pete Williamson was born in Derby but now lives in Tunbridge Wells with his young family. He has worked as a designer for an animation company and also as a psychiatric nurse. Pete's interests include peculiar music, good books and drinking too much coffee.
