Danny Wallace is a cult leader, a producer, and a comedian. He is the author of the number one British bestseller Join Me, which is currently being adapted for film. BBC America recently and bizarrely dubbed him "one of Britain's most respected journalists," but perhaps Playboy had a more accurate description of him: "F***ing brilliant." He is twenty-seven and lives in an old match factory in London.

Poor Danny Wallace! Once kids get their hands on this quirky and hilarious book, they're gonna be bugging him to write Hamish stories 'til he's 97. -- Tim Minchin
Original, quirky and super silly, Wallace has written a great book that kids - particularly boys - will really enjoy. * The Sun *
Like David Walliams, Wallace is a comedian turned children's author. Of the two, Wallace's writing is the funnier. -- Children's Book of the Week * The Sunday Times *
Wallace's vividly imagined adventure cracks along at a brisk pace. Bristling with one-liners, it has an easy, unforced humour and a strong sense of excitement... Time freezing is a neat device and Wallace uses it skilfully to make almost anything seem possible. * The Guardian *
