Ian Ogilvy is the author of two other books about the intrepid Measle Stubbs: Measle and the Wrathmonk and its sequel, Measle and the Dragodon. He is also an actor and has appeared in many plays, as well as in the popular British TV series The Saint, in which he played the title role. He was born in England but now lives in southern California with his wife, his two stepsons, and lots and lots of dogs.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6–This sequel to Measle and the Wrathmonk (HarperCollins, 2004) is reminiscent of a mediocre Saturday-morning cartoon. Measle Stubbs, the plucky young hero, and his dog, Tinker, battle a crowd of grotesque and insane sorcerers called Wrathmonks and come out with barely a scratch after more than 300 pages. The villains kidnap Measle's mother, who is a limitless source of mana–or magical power–and hand her over to the evil Dragodon, the last survivor of a race of ancient wizards. They also strike Measle's father with an amnesia spell, so it's Measle and Tinker to the rescue. Unfortunately, the Wrathmonks are cardboard bad guys; they constantly threaten the protagonist with plagues of boils or being eaten alive by giant germs, but it quickly becomes clear that he's never in any real danger. Worse, none of the good guys–except maybe Tinker, whose private monologues about the smelly kid (Measle) are often pretty funny–go far beyond two dimensions either.–Walter Minkel, New York Public Library
