Kyle Mewburn hails from Brisbane originally, but now lives in Millers Flat, Central Otago and has written a number of picture books for Scholastic including the award-winning Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck!, and the 2010 NZ Post Children's Book of the Year, Old Hu-Hu. Kyle's zany sense of humour is used to good effect in this new junior fiction series. Taupo illustrator, Donovan Bixley, is a talented artist with a range of styles. His work brings another dimension to Mewburn's text, often adding hilarious bits of his own to enhance the storyline.
