Jo Simmons

Perfect for fans of David Baddiel's 'Birthday Boy' – a hilarious tale of wish fulfilment gone wrong, about a boy struggling to arrange the birthday he feels he deserves, after his parents let him down. A tale that every child will relate to. 'This cautionary tale will make children yelp in agreement and roll around with laughter, but ultimately leave them appreciating their brother or sister a little bit more...' Suitable for primary school children Year 3 to Year 6.

Jo Simmons began her working life as a journalist. Her first fiction series for children, 'Pip Street', was inspired by her own kids' love of funny fiction, and two 'Super Loud Sam' books followed. In addition to children's fiction, she has also co-written a humorous parenting book, 'Can I Give Them Back Now?: The Aargh To Zzzz of Parenting'.
