About the Author

Jem Roberts was born in Ludlow and studied English, Film & Television at Aberystwyth University. A lifetime in magazines led to the honour of writing his first book, the acclaimed Clue Bible, The Fully Authorised History of I m Sorry I Haven t a Clue, whereupon a life-long adoration for Blackadder made this follow-up a must. This, his third book is probably the closest to heart. He lives in Bath, where he runs the comedy gang 'The Unrelated Family' and writes strange tales for young readers.
