Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up - he wanted to be Indiana Jones. So he studied Egyptology and archaeology and went on trips to faraway places. But all he found were interesting stories, so he decided to write them down. Jake Atlas and the Quest for the Crystal Mountain is Rob's fourth novel, though he has written more than thirty other books for children, including non-fiction and adaptations of such classics as Jekyll and Hyde. He lives in East Sussex with his wife and two young sons.
Jake Atlas is madcap, reckless and daring. His adventures will keep you on the edge of your seat. * George 9, LoveReading *
