About the author
Colin published his first collection of nonsense verse in 1975, shortly after graduating from The Royal College of Art, and since then has written over 60 children's books. His talent for off-message, anarchic laughter has brought him many fans, including celebrated American poet Ken Nesbitt, who calls him "a master of the art of humorous poetry for children." Colin lives in Battle, East Sussex. Visit his website at www.colinwest.com.
