Robin Jarvis studied graphic design in Newcastle and then worked in television and advertising making model monsters and puppets. He has been a full-time writer and illustrator for some time, and has a large following among children and adults. Robin's books are consistent best-sellers and he has won several awards for his work. The Dark Portal was runner-up for the Smarties Prize in 1989.From Booklist:
Book Three of the Deptford Histories, the prequel series to the Deptford Mice Triology, introduces Thomas, here a hard-drinking old sea mouse who writes down his memories to exorcise them. As a youngster, he and his friend Woodget are hoodwinked into a terrifying voyage complete with storms, battles, and a heathen god. Although this is the final book in the prequel series, it stands alone. Its archaic sentence structures and florid word choices are problematic, but series fans probably won't mind. They'll find the familiar mix of violent and heroic acts that has made the series popular. Ilene Cooper
