Sam Copeland

  • 5 stars across 11 books
    Sam Copeland is an author, which has come as something of a shock to him. He is from Manchester and now lives in London with two smelly cats, three smelly children and one relatively clean-smelling wife. Sam also works as a dinosaur de-boner, removing skeletons from dinosaurs and giving them to museums. Once the museums have finished with them, he then re-bones the dinosaurs, much to their relief.  Charlie Turns Into a T-Rex  is his second book, following his bestselling debut,  Charlie Changes Into a Chicken  . Despite legal threats, he refuses to stop writing.
