Join the king of comedy Jeremy Strong and his friends cardigan-wearing Armadillo and tuba-playing Hare as they ponder the meaning of life and cheese sandwiches! Jeremy will be talking about his inspiration for this new collection of funny tales, as well as about sitting in bed at 2am penning ideas and the generally strange life of the writer.
When Jeremy Strong was at university his first job was at a bakery, putting the jam into three thousand doughnuts every night. It was the most boring job ever!
It wasn’t until he trained to be a teacher that he started to tell and write stories for children. He loves writing stories he says because it’s ‘the only time you alone have complete control and can make anything happen.’
Jeremy has written more than a hundred books for children including the bestselling series The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog, My Brother’s Famous Bottom and Romans on the Rampage. He lives near Bath with his wife, Gillie, four cats and a flying cow.
