About the author
Ross Montgomery started writing stories as a teenager, when he should have been doing homework, and hasn’t really stopped since. He has written over twenty-five books for children, including The Midnight Guardians which was shortlisted for the Costa Book Award 2021 and selected as one of The Guardian’s Children’s Books of the Year. Ross Montgomery has worked as a pig farmer, a postman and a primary school teacher, so writing books was the next logical step. He spent his childhood reading everything he could get his hands on, from Jacqueline Wilson to Beano annuals, and it taught him everything that's worth knowing. If you looked through his pockets you'd find empty crisp packets, lists of things to do, and a bottle of that stuff you put on your nails to stop you biting them. Author of The Midnight Guardians, Max and the Millions and Ten Delicious Teachers, Ross has been shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and Branford Boase Award, and nominated for the Carnegie Award. His picture books with David Litchfield, The Building Boy and Space Tortoise, have been nominated for the Kate Greenaway Award and sold all over the world. He lives in London with his wife, a cat called Fun Bobby, and a cactus on every available surface.
