Another understated masterpiece from the creator of NOT NOW, BERNARD.
David McKee's first book was published in 1964. His books are now
published in many languages throughout the world, and many of them
have been adapted for television. He is one of the leading
contemporary children's book creators.
Brett McKee is David's son and lives in Hampshire. He has two sons, and is interested in classic cars and guitars.
