About the Author

David Roberts was born in Liverpool. He always loved drawing from an early age and couldn't wait to escape high school and go to art college. There he developed a keen interest in pottery and fashion and went on to study a degree in fashion design at Manchester Metropolitan University. After university he worked as a milliner and began to get work as a fashion illustrator, but always felt his true calling was in children's book illustration.


Gr 4-6-Young Fergal McNally died in The Fall of Fergal (Holt, 2004), and in this sequel, his preserved brain has been stolen and it's up to his siblings to get it back. Unfortunately, this is no easy task as it's being held by the terrifying Mr. Maggs in a dilapidated mansion located in the heart of Fishbone Forest, from which no one has ever emerged alive. Ardagh's meandering narrative, loaded with deadpan humor and macabre details, and the many events and characters will make this entry hard to follow without having read the first book. Excellent black-and-white illustrations add to the book's creepiness.-Heather Ulesoo, New York Public Library Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

'Ardagh's writing is completely off the wall and steeped in black humour. Destined to win hearts and minds of eager readers.' The Scotsman 'A wacky, playful, entertaining and well-structured tale... My squeamish 10-year-old took all in her stride and pronounced it terrific.' Niall MacMonagle, Irish Times

In the paper-over-board Heir of Mystery: The Second Unlikely Exploit by Philip Ardagh, illus. by David Roberts, the McNally siblings hunt down the stolen brain of their dearly departed brother, who took a tumble in The Fall of Fergal. They must fend off a teddy-bear-wielding mad genius ? la Dr. Frankenstein who has plans for Fergal's noggin. (Sept.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
