Om forfatteren

Emma Chichester Clark is one of Britain's best loved children's authors and illustrators.

Constance in Peril is her second collaboration with Ben Manley.

Ben Manley is a writer and designer. His writing is full of humour and heart with a touch of the gothic - as weird and wonderful as an attic full of vampire hamsters.

Ben lives in Norwich with his wife and two children.
