About the Author:

Sam McBratney sums up his post-war childhood as short trousers, Fair Isle jumper, the 11 plus and grammar school. He taught at a secondary school himself for a while and was a primary school teacher. He is the author of numerous books for children and young adults, published internationally, including The Green Kids.
